Turkish firm Enka wins $60m Iraq deal
Enka will install and operate two production facilities at Majnoon
Iraq and partners Royal Dutch Shell and Petronas have awarded a contract worth more than $60m to Turkish firm Enka to install and operate two production facilities at the Majnoon oilfield, Reuters has reported.
Under the deal, the Turkish firm will install two production facilities with a capacity for processing 100,000 barrels per day of crude to be produced from the supergiant Majnoon oilfield.
It will also install two crude storage tanks and four pumping units which will connect a pipeline network at three well-pads.
"Output is expected to hit 175,000 bpd in 2012 and that requires installing new crude facilities and further preparing well-pads to drill new oil wells," a government official said.
