Gazprom Neft PJSC said a gas plant at Badra field in eastern Iraq has undergone trials and is expected to start commercial production in the fourth quarter (starting Oct.). It will be able to process 1.6 billion cubic meters per year, Oil and Gas Journal reported. The company has begun trial shipments of liquefied petroleum gas to Iraq’s state-owned Gas Filling Company. Gas is also being supplied to the Az-Zubaydiyah electric power station 100 kilometers away. Gazprom Neft said the gas production complex will greatly increase electricity production in Iraq. Commercial gas will be used as fuel at five generators at the Badra gas-turbine power plant, which has a total planned capacity of 123.5 megawatts. The gas plant project also includes construction of a granulated sulfur production facility. Russia's Gazprom Neft will also work in Iran's oil sector on the basis of a memorandum of understanding it signed with Austria's OMV. OMV could help Gazprom Neft in the initial geological assessment of two blocks in Iran, Gazprom Neft said.
