Gas Gathering and Injection to Southern Oilfields- Aghajari Gas Injection Project

Geographical Location

It is located in Omidiyeh, 90 kilometers to the southeast of Ahwaz

Main Objectives

Injection of 20 trillion cubic feet of gas per day from South Pars Oil field for pressure-boosting of the reservoir to reach an extra production of 1.2 billion barrels of crude oil within 25 years.

Since oil production rate in Aghajari Oil Field has decreased to 180,000 barrels of oil per day due to many years of production and pressure drop, injection of 2 billion cubic feet of gas per day from phases 6, 7, and 8 of South Pars to Aghajari reservoir is to be carried out to achieve the production of 1.8 billion barrels of oil per day, to avoid production decline, and to increase the production up to 300,000 barrels of oil per day.

Aghajari Project will come on stream in July 2009 with the trains of A, B, C, D, E, F, and G and the 7th train will come on stream in October 2009.
