Gazprom Neft subsidiary Gazprom Neft Middle East BV has produced its three-millionth tonne of oil since starting commercial production at the Sarqala field in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Total cumulative production at the Sarqala field has reached three million tonnes, or 23 million barrels of oil, as at December 2019. Daily liquid hydrocarbon production at this asset is currently running at 4,000 tonnes of oil, or 30,500 barrels, per day.

First oil was obtained at the Garmian block in Sarqala field in 2011, with commercial crude shipments commencing in 2015, following the commissioning of the Sarqala-1 well. A second well was commissioned in 2018, with a third due to come online in 2019. Surface facilities and infrastructure have been significantly expanded in the course of developing this field. Final works on expanding the central processing facility are expected to be completed by end-2019, production throughput having reached 35,000 barrels per day. Concurrently with this, the pipeline processing system has been updated, and the production-process automated control system modernised. Formation-water utilisation infrastructure with throughput capacity of 5,000 bpd is to be built at the Sarqala field in the near future.

Gazprom Neft is involved in implementing two projects in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq at the Shakal and Garmian blocks. Gazprom Neft’s interest in the Shakal block is 80 percent (with the remaining interest being held by the Government of the KRI), and 40 percent in the Garmian block (with the Government of the KRI holding 20 percent, and Canada’s WesternZagros 40 percent). Gazprom Neft has been Operator on the Garmian project since February 2016.
