Gazprom issues new tender for Badra oil wells, Iraq
Russia’s Gazprom Neft has issued a new tender to drill six oil wells at the Badra oil field in eastern Iraq, the company said in a statement. Gazprom has set June 13, as a closing date for receiving offers. The Gazprom consortium, which includes South Korea’s Gas Corp, Turkish Petroleum Corp (TPAO), and Malaysia’s Petronas, plans to increase production from the field to 170,000 barrels a day by 2017, according to a development plan agreed with the Iraqi government. Badra’s reserves are estimated to be around 3 billion barrels of oil. Gazprom, which owns the largest stake in the consortium at 40%, signed a contract with Baghdad to develop the field in January 2009.
