Redeveloping the Missan Oil Fields

In 2010, CNOOC International – alongside partners Iraqi Drilling Company and Turkiye Petrolleri Anonim Ortakligi – signed a technical service contract for the development and production of the Missan Oil Fields located in southeast Iraq. CNOOC International holds a 63.75% participating interest in the contract and is the lead contractor.

The Missan Oil Fields incorporate a number of integrated facilities for processing oil, gas, water, and electricity, including:

  • A terminal treatment plant
  • The first natural gas treatment plant in Iraq
  • A fresh water treatment plant
  • An oily wastewater treatment plant
  • A 110 megawatt power plant
  • A 55 kilometre gathering trunk line
  • A 53 kilometre crude oil transmission pipeline

In 2014, the oil transfer pipelines for the Missan Oil Fields commenced production, with a daily transport capacity of 500,000 barrels of crude oil.
