15 Jun 2015: Two of Tatweer Petroleum’s newest facilities located in the Bahrain Field were officially inaugurated by Energy Minister and company chairman Dr Abdulhussain Mirza. Dr Mirza, accompanied by members of the Tatweer board, officials from the National Oil and Gas Authority, Bapco, Banagas and Tatweer Petroleum Management inaugurated Tatweer’s new compression stations as well as its new pump repair shop during a tour of the facilities. The minister praised Tatweer for completing these company milestones ahead of schedule and commended them on their efforts. “Tatweer Petroleum’s vision of becoming the leader of sustainable growth is evident in the major strides the company continuously takes,” Dr Mirza said. “These new facilities are examples of Tatweer’s efficient and streamlined organization and of its continuing contribution to the economic growth of the kingdom. “The new compression facilities will further help to conserve the kingdom’s natural gas as well as allow more oil to be produced from the Bahrain Field,” he said. Tatweer Petroleum’s compression stations were commissioned in the second quarter of this year. The 24 new compressors are designed to handle the excess associated gas in the Bahrain Field. This excess gas is re-injected back into the oil reservoir in order to maintain the pressure of the reservoir as well as to conserve the kingdom’s gas and in doing this it allows Tatweer to increase its oil production. The pump repair workshop is a fully equipped modern facility that allows Tatweer Petroleum engineers to rebuild its failed downhole beam pumps without the need to ship them to external repair agencies. This provided a more economical solution and much faster turnaround of the repairs and helps to better meet production requirements. Tatweer Petroleum utilizes the latest enhanced oil recovery technologies to implement its mission to develop the Bahrain Field to maximize stakeholders’ value and contribute to the growth of Bahrain’s economy. This will support the vision of Tatweer Petroleum to boost the kingdom’s economic growth and social prosperity. In December 2009, Tatweer Petroleum assumed responsibility for the stewardship and redevelopment of the Bahrain Field.
