Petroleum Engineering and Development Company (PEDEC) is developing the infrastructure to increase crude output from South Azadegan Oilfield in the oil-rich Khuzestan Province.
According to IRNA, once the vital infrastructures, including crude processing units, wellhead installations and oil transfer pipelines, are in place, the field's current production of 110,000 barrels per day will reach 320,000 bpd.
PEDEC started the development venture in 2017 and is projected to complete it by the end of 2020, the news agency added.
Discovered in 1978, Azadegan Oilfield is the third largest hydrocarbon reserve in the world after Ghawar Oilfield in Saudi Arabia and Burgan Oilfield in Kuwait. The field is composed of four layers, namely Sarvak, Kazhdomi, Godvan and Fahilan.
