Al-Ahdab Oilfield helped local area take on a new look

In June 2011, the first barrel of commercial crude oil was produced in Al-Ahdab Oilfield, which was the first oilfield put into operation with new capacity in post-war Iraq. Over the past five years, the project has brought about significant changes in the area.

Promoting local development

The oilfield was put into operation three years ahead of schedule with an annual output of seven million tons of oil, contributing an additional USD 10 billion in revenue to the Iraqi government over the expected amount in the contract.

The Iraqi government stipulates that for each barrel of oil produced, a certain share of funds will be allocated to the production area. These funds have promoted economic development in Wasit Governorate, where the oilfield is situated, resulting in its transition from an agricultural to an oil-producing province.

The project has met local energy needs. Al- Ahdab Oilfield supplies fuel to Zubaydiah power plant, the largest newly built power plant in Iraq. The power plant can thereby provide sufficient electricity to Wasit Governorate, and accounts for 60% of power supply to Baghdad, the capital of Iraq. Meanwhile, the oilfield supplies 500 cubic meters of LPG per day, benefiting more than 300,000 households in Wasit Governorate and residents in Baghdad and Karbala.

Promoting localized operation

Since its development and construction, Al- Ahdab Oilfield has provided more than 5,000 jobs for local people.

The project gives top priority to cooperation with local enterprises. Through promoting the establishment of international standard construction and operation systems among local contractors, the project has played an indispensable role in boosting the development of the oil industry in Iraq.
