Iraq: ShaMaran provides update on production at the Atrush field, Kurdistan
09 Jan 2018
ShaMaran Petroleum reports that operations in the Atrush field in Kurdistan are continuing in a normal, safe and secure manner. Atrush is currently producing at approx. 27,000 barrels of oil per day ('bopd') and exports are continuing via the Kurdistan Export Pipeline system. Atrush exports for the month of December averaged 26,163 bopd and benefitted from a higher facility uptime than the 90% previously projected.
Currently the production facilities are limited to processing approx. 27,000 bopd of the total 30,000 bopd capacity due to low ambient temperatures which limits the amount of heat available to process the oil to export specifications.
