Monday, July 29, 2019

Libya’s Waha Oil Company announced that the contracts to redevelop its Dahra and Bahi oil fields have gone to local companies. This is part of Waha’s ongoing efforts to rehabilitate a number of oil fields whose surface facilities and infrastructure were destroyed during the fighting and war in the region.

The company contracted Libya Engineering Technology Company, a subsidiary NOC, to carry out the preliminary engineering study for the rehabilitation of the fields, including the strategic project for the redevelopment of production in the Dorra/Al-Jafra reservoir.

According to reports, the contract is for five months, over which a number of initial design options for surface facilities will be studied and the technical and economic optimization of its rehabilitation will be determined. Following this a work program for detailed engineering studies will be prepared.

The target fields have a potential production of about 100-120,000 bpd of crude oil and 200-250 Mmcf/d of gas
