Shamma said one of the sticking points was that Shell wanted more guarantees for the amount of associated gas
it would be able to utilise from the three southern fields -- Rumaila, Zubair and West Qurna Phase One -- covered by the deal.
Abraxas Petroleum Corporation (AMEX:ABP) announces initial production at a rate in excess of 400 barrels of oil per day plus associated gas
from its second successful horizontal exploitation well, the Sage Grouse 3H, in the Brooks Draw Field, Wyoming.
This can treat and processe associated gas
from the Karatchok, Suwaidiyah and Rumailan oilfields.
Bourland notes that around 60 per cent of Saudi Arabia's gas output is associated gas
produced alongside crude oil.
Under the terms of a service contract with the Syrian Petroleum Company, the project will gather, process and transport a large associated gas
stream that has been flared in oil fields around the city of Deir Ez Zor.
The Energy Ministry's Natural Resources Department owns the associated gas
lying in reservoirs operated by firms other than TPAO.
It has the capacity to treat up to 80,000 CM/day of associated gas
and can extract small quantities of LPG and condensates.
NGL-1 processes associated gas
produced from Dukhan into 1,350 t/d of ethane-rich gas; 1,284 t/d of propane; 851 t/d of butane; and 588 t/d of NGL.
The project, known as ODIDI Associated Gas
Gathering (AGG) Project, will gather and process associated gas
from five flowstations in the Niger Delta area of SPDC's operation in Nigeria.
These now produce 145 MCF/d and their output should reach more than 1,000 MCF/d by 2016, in addition to associated gas
being used extensively (see gmt23KwtFieldsJun6-11).
8 bcf of storage on the Tennessee and National Fuel pipelines, as well as 55,000 MMBtu/d of Tennessee capacity and associated gas
An unmeasured amount of associated gas
has been flared during the production of that oil.
