Multiple new facilities have been constructed, including:
Our field renovations are enabling facilities from the 1970s to continue to treat production fluids – oil, gas and water – at levels never previously seen in the field’s history.
Major renovations and expansions include:
Construction has begun on Rumaila’s first ever facility for collecting and treating produced water from degassing stations so that it can be reinjected into the reservoirs.
This is a critical step in addressing two of Rumaila’s major long-term challenges: sourcing more water to maintain pressure within the reservoirs to continue to achieve oil production targets, as well as making use of the volume of produced water that comes up from wells mixed in with the oil and gas and separated at degassing stations.
The new produced water reinjection facility (PWRI-1) is being constructed near the Rumaila power plant and is projected to come online in the summer of 2024.
The PWRI programme will in time extend to other parts of the field, with similar new facilities being built in the future in locations that will be determined by produced water volumes and reservoir injection requirements.
