Iranian field start-up said to be imminent

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Oct. 4
-- Jofeir oil field in southwestern Iran is ready for commissioning, according to Shana, the official news agency.

Belpars Petroleum Co. Ltd., a joint venture of National Iranian Oil Co. and state-owned Belorusneft of Belarus, is developing the field under an Iranian buy-back contract.

Shana quoted an Iranian official who said the field has been producing 3,500 b/d of oil from four wells under an early-production program. After installation of pumps, he said, capacity will increase to 6,000 b/d.

The field is 50 km west of Ahwaz and 30 km from giant Azadegan oil field under development in a venture between NIOC and Inpex Corp. of Japan, which is reported to be considering withdrawal from the project because of the threat of sections (OGJ Online, Sept. 30, 2010).

Belorusneft estimates Jofeir reserves at 2 billion bbl of hydrocarbons.

An NIOC subsidiary says Jofeir oil is 23º gravity and occurs mostly in the Upper Cretaceous Ilam reservoir.
