21 September 2014

Austrian group to provide study on project to operator DNO

Austria’s ILF Tecon has won a contract to design a new central processing facility (CPF) at the Tawke oil field in the Kurdish region of Iraq.

The front-end engineering and design (feed) deal was awarded by Norway-based project operator DNO International and includes the design of oil processing trains and related utilities.

The project forms the centre of DNO’s Tawke Field CPF 2 development to raise the field’s production capacity to 200,000 barrels a day (b/d) of oil.

DNO’s second CPF will carry out the separation and treatment of crude oil and its export via existing pipeline connections. The design works also cover the integration of a new thermal power plant, which is also being designed by ILF Tecon.

DNO produced an average of 116,112 barrels of oil equivalent a day (boe/d) in the second quarter of 2014 from its operations in northern Iraq, according to its operational review for the period.

The Norwegian company has a 55 per cent stake in the Tawke operation with UK-listed Genel Energy holding 25 per cent and the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) owning 20 per cent.
