High pressure sour gas injection
and utilities (water, fuel gas, diesel).
Sour gas injection
to train three of sweetening in the refinery started operational late August, running with the capacity of 12.
The new project using sour gas injection
technology to maximise production capacity to about 39m tonnes of oil per year, will increase production and the Wellhead Pressure Management Project will keep the existing Tengiz plants full by lowering the flowing wellhead pressure and boosting the pressure to its six processing trains.
FGP will use state-of-the-art sour gas injection
technology, successfully developed and proven during TCO's previous expansion in 2008, to enhance oil recovery.
They also toured a small exhibition featuring some of PDOs award-winning projects and challenges, including Harweel, which is one of the worlds most challenging miscible sour gas injection
projects, Miraah, one of the largest solar energy ventures globally and the Nimr reed beds, a pioneering energy-efficient wetland scheme to treat produced water from oil production.

PDO has drilled more than 60 wells in these fields and in Phase-1 has produced oil from four fields and injected gas in Zalzala to confirm the viability of miscible sour gas injection
Receiving 'Best Oil and Gas Mega Project' Award for the world's first and largest miscible sour gas injection
project, and the 'Best Oil and Gas Innovation or Technology (Surface)' Award for using solar steam generation to enhance oil recovery, the company continues to demonstrate its relentless efforts to advancing the oil and gas industry.
The increase in crude production will be achieved by applying state-of-the-art drilling technology and focusing on boosting output from several small areas and with sour gas injection
FGP will utilize sour gas injection
technology used in existing operations to expand production capacity by approximately 12 million tonnes per year.
The expansion programme, launched after the government and TCO sealed their $810m compromise deal in early 2003, involves second-generation and sour gas injection
Basically, the sour gas injection
process has three main goals: to avoid massive sulphur production as a by-product of the sweetening process; to avoid the flaring of sweetened gas and subsequent CO2 production; and to keep the oil well pressure at levels suitable for full exploitation
