Following extensive discussions, the Iraqi Ministry of Oil and Baker Hughes signed a contract for fast-track solutions to help the recovery of flare gas in line with the country’s strategy for energy sector development.
An advanced modular gas processing plant has been recommended for Nassiriya as part of the initiative by Baker Hughes, which is able to cover any project from upstream to midstream and downstream.
As per the agreement, Baker Hughes, a GE company, will develop advanced solutions for flare gas at the Nassiriya and Al Gharraf oilfields, using modular gas processing technology developed in the United States, with the project to be undertaken in two stages. In the first stage, the advanced modular gas processing solution will be deployed to dehydrate and compress flare gas to generate over 2.83 million m3/day of gas.
The Nassiriya plant will then be expanded to a complete natural gas liquid facility to recover 200 m3/day of dry gas, liquefied petroleum gas and condensate.
BHGE has also strengthened its localization initiatives in Iraq with the expansion of its technical services facility in the North Rumaila oilfield. It offers a wide range of testing, repair and refurbishment services for its customers in the country as well as undertakes fabrication and assembly of key products establishing BHGE as a complete technical solutions provider.
