Hamid Bovard said the boost will be made possible as the two new platforms
(A20 and A21) start pumping oil from the field.
He said the installation operation of the two platforms finished last Tuesday,
Loading, transfer and installation of the two structures took 90 days for
IOOC, Bovard added, saying this is while the platforms' jackets, each weighing
1,200 tons, took 22 to be manufactured.
Abouzar is located 76 kilometers southwest of the Kharg Island. Its
output, now at roughly 200,000 barrels per day from about 90 wells, is transferred via
a pipeline to the island for export after being processed.
