PetroChina tenders new Iraq power deal

03 November 2013

Three 50MW turbines planned for Halfaya oil field power plant

PetroChina has issued a tender for the construction of a new power plant at the field at the Halfaya oil field in the southeast of Iraq. The state-owned Chinese firm has set a 28 December deadline for the submission of bids.

The deal is the third phase expansion of the power plant, which will supply captive power for the Halfaya field central processing facility-2 (CPF-2) and covers the installation of three sets of 50MW gas turbine generators.

Other options, such as a single 150MW generator, may also be considered.

The Halfaya field is scheduled to increase oil production to 535,000 barrels a day (b/d) by 2017, from 100,000 b/d in 2012. CPF-2 is currently under construction by China Petroleum Engineering & Construction Company (CPECC), a subsidiary of PetroChina.
