2020-12-15South Pars Phase 11 Drilling Operations Officially BeginsTEHRAN (NIOC) _ Drilling operations of the first well of South Pars Phase 11 development project kicked off officially by the order of Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh today (Monday, December 14).
MAPNA Group’s offshore rig (MD-1) was discharged from Soroush Oil Field on October 30 and was deployed in the position of phase 11 of South Pars in Persian Gulf waters on November 6. Drilling 12 appraisal/development wells in the phase in two stages is on the rig’s agenda.
In the first stage, drilling and completion of five appraisal-development wells, installation of SPD11B platform, and initial production of 500 million cubic feet of gas per day (equivalent to 14 million cubic meters) will be achieved.
Later on, by drilling and completing seven other wells, parallel with the initial production, the total rich gas recovery from the platform will increase to one billion cubic feet (equivalent to 28 million cubic meters) per day.
The development of South Pars Phase 11 has been fully entrusted to Petropars after France’s Total and China’s CNPC International pulled out of a consortium that was supposed to develop the project.
