Tehran, Iran, March 14
By Mehdi Sepahvand -- Trend:
The drilling of onshore wells at Iran's Kish Gas Field has made 73.5 percent progress so far, according to Abdolreza Haji Hosseinnejad CEO of Matn Co., the company conducting the project.
He said while the drillings, which included 12+1 wells, have made so much progress, the land pipeline is also 83 percent complete, SHANA news agency reported March 14.
The project is intended to yield one billion cubic feet of gas and 11.3 thousand barrels of gas condensates per day.
It was designed during the administration of former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but was not started until a year or so ago.
Hosseinnejad further said that the drillings are expected to end in the first half of the next Iranian fiscal year (to begin March 20).
He hoped the whole project will be complete one year after the drillings are over.
The field holds about 83.3 trillion cubic feet of gas as well as about 398 million barrels of gas condensates.
