Two Chinese companies awarded a key gas development contract in Iraq last year will complete the project in mid-2023, the official Iraqi daily Alsabah has said. 

Halfaya Field, located in the Eastern Maysan Governorate, will produce nearly 300 million cubic feet per day (mcf/d) when it is completed by the China Petroleum Engineering and Construction Corp and Petrochina, the paper said. 

It quoted Ali Hamoud, Director General of Maysan Oil Company, as saying the project would also produce condensates and that output could be expanded later. 

“We expect the project to be completed within 30 months …this means all infrastructure  and equipment installation work will finish in mid-2023,” he said, adding that trial operation would begin shortly after the project is completed. 

Hamoud said the project involves treatment of  all produced associated gas in Halfaya field, with estimated crude oil reserves of more than four billion barrels.
