By Elnur Baghishov – Trend:
Iran's South Zagros Oil and Gas Production Company (SZOGPC) has increased its extraction from the Nar gas field by 5 million cubic meters daily, Executive Director of the company Abolhassan Mohammadi said, Trend reports citing the company's website.
According to Mohammadi, SZOGPC currently extracts 19 million cubic meters of gas daily from the Nar field.
The director added that the increase was achieved by making some changes in the working mechanism of the compressors in order to increase the production ratio.
“Thus, the pressure on the compressors was reduced,” he said.
The Nar gas field is located in the Bushehr Province (southern Iran) and, reportedly, contains 500 billion cubic meters of gas.
South Zagros Oil and Gas Production Company (SZOGPC) is one of three subsidiaries of the Iranian Central Oil Fields Company (ICOFC). The South Zagros Oil and Gas Production Company currently has 9 gas fields - Aghar, Dalan, Nar, Kangan, Sarkhoon, Tabnak, Homa, Varavi, Shanol, and 2 oil fields - Saadatabad and Sarvestan under its management.
The South Zagros Oil and Gas Production Company extracted about 23 billion cubic meters of gas, 7.5 million barrels of gas condensate and 1.14 million barrels of crude oil during the first six months of the current Iranian year (March 21 through September 22, 2021).
SZOGPC plans to produce 165 million cubic meters of gas daily from 9 gas fields by the end of the current Iranian year (March 21, 2021 through March 20, 2022).
