Tatweer Petroleum opens gas expansion project
Friday, Jun 01, 2012
Bahrain’s Minister Energy Dr. Abdul-Hussain Bin Ali Mirza inaugurated Tatweer’s 3rd phase of gas compression in the Bahrain Field near Hafeera.
The inauguration was attended by Shaikh Mohamed bin Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, CEO of nogaholding, Shaikh Mohamed bin Khalifa bin Duaij Al Khalifa, Banagas General Manager, Gordon Smith, CEO of Bapco and the executive management of Tatweer Petroleum led by Dr. Ed Hanley and Adel AlMoayyed and other invited guests.
The Compression Phase III project handles approximately 100 mmscfd of additional associated gas production, which will contribute to increasing oil production from the Field. The compressors reinject this gas for reservoir pressure maintenance, effectively storing the gas for future production. The project has a total of 33 compressors in three stations and was constructed in approximately 6 months. The compressors now bring Tatweer’s total installed compression capacity to over 230 MMSCFD.
