5 Companies Shortlisted for Basrah Oil Fields Water Injection Project

Iraq has created a shortlist of 5 companies to bid for the first phase of a water-injection project that will help it improve long-term production from its southern oil fields

Iraq has created a shortlist of 5 companies to bid for the first phase of a water-injection project that will help it improve long-term production from its southern oil fields,  according to the director general of the state-run Basrah Oil Company.

"There are five international companies that are competing to win the project," Ihsan Abduljabbar Ismaael said, adding that the "technical tender" will be awarded later in April.

The Common Seawater Supply Project (CSSP) will take in around 5 million b/d of water from the Persian Gulf, process it for field injection, and deliver it by pipeline to 6 oil fields in Basrah.

IOC's operate most of the fields in Basrah under technical service contracts that require the government to provide water to maintain pressure.
