According to Hamoun Kazemeini, the manager of the South Yaran oilfield development project, the installation of this system has increased the field’s production capacity by at least 5,000 barrels per day (bpd), ILNA reported.
Kazemeini noted that this is the first time that such an MOS system is installed in one of the West Karoun oilfields, adding: “The installation of this system is very significant since it has been constructed and installed completely by local experts and engineers.”
Using this system was put on the agenda to reach maximum production levels from the wells of this joint field, the official added.
According to Kazemeini, all 12 wells of the South Yaran oilfield are currently operational, and six more wells are planned to become operational in this field in the near future.
A mobile oil separator is a device for separating gas from crude oil and pumping it to the pipeline during the drilling, repairing, acidizing and testing of oil wells.
The field lies 120 kilometers west of Ahwaz, the capital city of the southwestern province of Khuzestan, on the borderline with Iraq.
The field is adjacent to Azadegan Field in the east, and to Iraq’s Majnoun Field in the west.
The West Karoun region which includes five major fields, namely, North Azadegan, South Azadegan, North Yaran, South Yaran, and Yadavaran is prioritized among the country’s top development projects.
