Oil companies seek independent water facilities in Iraq to boost output

As delays to Iraq's critical water supply facility project continue, international oil companies operating in the south are seeking to pushing ahead with their own water injection facilities to meet production targets.

As delays to Iraq's critical water supply facility project continue, international oil companies operating in the south are seeking to pushing ahead with their own water injection facilities to meet production targets. Malaysia's Petronas, operator of the Gharraf oil field,

is the latest developer to join the list, asking the oil ministry for permission to build a standalone facility, sources close to the project said Sunday, November 2.

The new projects are driven by delays to Iraq's multi-billion dollar Common Seawater Supply Facility project, a joint scheme that will be critical to longer-term plans for the management of reservoir pressure at a number of southern fields.

It is, however, still stuck in the conceptual design phase, having suffered several setbacks since it was first conceived in 2010.
