The operation is aimed at maintaining and
enhancing production of the brown field which is shared by Iran and Iraq. The well is expected to be revived by the operation within the next 10 days and start production.
This is the first time that such a pump is being
installed at a well at West Karoon Region.
Ten other such pumps are to be installed at
various wells of the field by the end of the current Iranian calendar year to
March 20, 2019.
Iran is operating North Yaran for the production of
30,000 b/d of crude oil. Production from the field began on November 17, 2016.
The oil field is located in the southwestern province
of Khuzestan, approximately 130 km west of Ahwaz, near the border Iran and
Iraq, and is adjacent to the Hawizeh Marshes.
