Iraq to Develop 40,000 B/D Kifl Oil Field in South

Iraqi Oil Minister Hussein al-Shahristani has said his ministry plans to develop the Kifl oil field in southern Iraq with a capacity of 40,000 barrels a day. Al-Shahristani said that crude oil from the field, whose proven oil reserves are estimated at 150 million barrels, would help supply crude oil to nearby small refineries in Samawa and Najaf provinces. Each refinery has a production capacity of 10,000 b/d, which could be increased gradually to 20,000 b/d, respectively.

Iraq was signed a memorandum of understanding with Tunisia's national oil company, ETAP, to carry out a study of the Kifl oil field. Also a former Canadian company called Ranger carried out a study about the field, the oil officials said.

Earlier this month, al-Shahristani said the giant al-Ahdab oil field in southern Iraq and east of Baghdad would top his ministry's list of oil fields planned for development.

But Iraq would need a new oil and gas law before signing contracts with foreign companies to develop oil fields. According to al-Shahristani, the law is expected to be enacted by the end of this year.
