Iran oil production in Persian Gulf to increase as drilling rig installed

SHANA (Tehran) – A drilling rig was erected off Lavan Island, the Persian Gulf, another step toward boosting oil output, said an Iranian Offshore Oil Company (IOOC) official Monday.

Pouya Ma’arefi, who is the director of Resalat oil field development project, said the drilling rig was installed adjacent to DP-R1 platform.

The first stage of development and maintenance project of Resalat oil field is aimed at increasing crude oil production by 11,000 barrels, added the director, explaining, “To this end, the manufacturing of a new wellhead platform, cabling, pipelaying, repairing and updating R1 platform, drilling four new wells, and two redrilling operations have been planned.”

Some part of the production project has been implemented as the drilling rig has been installed and the drilling of two new wells and the redrilling of a well have ended, said Ma’arefi, continuing that the remaining operations, including the installation of the new platform and the rig, will be carried out.

According to him, the contractor started building legs of Resalat field’s wellhead platform in Khorramshahr, southwestern Iran, last month.
