American oil field service firm Halliburton has been awarded two contracts to work on Iraq’s Zubair Oil Field.
The energy giant’s deals with Eni Iraq BV will see it delivering integrated drilling services for the Southern Iraq project.
As part of the contracts, Halliburton will mobilize four to six rigs onsite, with the aim of drilling development wells over the next two years.
Commenting on the contract, vice president of the Iraq area for Halliburton, Mahmoud El-Kady, said: “We are pleased to be awarded this work and the opportunity to collaborate with Eni to engineer solutions for the development of Zubair.
“We have provided a wide array of drilling services to Eni since 2011 and signing these contracts are a testimony to our continuous commitment to safety and superior service quality.”
Zubair Oil Field is a master redevelopment scheme worth $19.4bn, located in Iraq’s Basra governorate. According to its project profile on ProTenders, the project includes degassing stations, the drilling of 60 wells, wire-line logging, revamping existing production facilities, and acidifying and well-testing work. The project’s developers include a joint venture of Missan Oil Company, Kogas, Occidental Oil & Gas International, and Eni Group.
Halliburton’s portfolio of work in Iraq includes another project in the country’s south, which it announced in January 2017.
A Halliburton statement at the time revealed that Shell Iraq Petroleum Development had contracted the American firm to mobilize three rigs to drill development wells over a two-year period for Majnoon Oil Field.
