The engineering contract is part of the 29-month long project which aims at building 4.39 million cubic meter-sour gas treatment facility for Iraq’s Majnoon oilfield. The field is currently operated by state-run Basra Oil Co, and produces around 240,000 bpd, which will be later boosted to 450,000 bpd.
