Iran lays out a plan to increase its production from a huge oil field shared with Iraq

29th December, 2021

Iran announced that it plans to increase its production from a huge joint field with Iraq to reach 320,000 barrels per day

The managing director of the state-owned National Iranian Oil Company, Mohsen Khojashmehr, said, “Iran plans to increase the production of the South Azadegan oil field (Majnoon oil field) to 320,000 barrels per day at the beginning of 2023, while the OPEC member is moving forward with projects that have been postponed. due to the reimposition of US sanctions in 2018

A local Iranian company is developing the field at a value of $5.6 billion, according to what was reported by the “Shana” news service of the Iranian Oil Ministry

Azadegan stretches on the border with Iraq, where it is known as Majnoon, which is Iran’s largest joint field and contains 32 billion barrels of oil. Iran has lagged behind Iraq in developing the field due to US sanctions on the country’s energy sector

Khojasmehr added thatby the end of the current Iranian year, 17 wells that were not in service will be repaired and operated” and the current Iranian year ends on March 20, 2022

Khojasmehr indicated that “the second phase will witness from Azadegan 280,000 barrels per day to produce 600,000 barrels per day of oil completely from the field

Oil production in southern Azadegan has fluctuated since 2004, when Japan’s Inpex signed the first contract to develop the field. INPEX abandoned the project due to US pressure, and China’s CNPC took over the development of the field in 2009

The state-run Petroleum Engineering and Development Corporation has been developing South Azadegan with local contractors since 2014 after China’s CNPC was expelled from the field due to work delays

French giant TotalEnergies took over the field’s development only later to withdraw from the project in 2018 due to the reimposition of US sanctions that year  LINK
