Aghajari Gas Injection Project

Aghajari Gas Injection Project

Aghajari Gas Injection project is the world’s biggest Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) project to be inaugurated in Iran in late 2008.

The reservoir dimension of Aghajari ‎fields is 56*6 kms with the original oil-‎in-place of 28 billion barrels and 10.2 billion ‎barrels of recoverable oil (based on ‎latest studies). The total quantities ‎extracted since the start of operations at ‎Aghajari till this date have been 8.8 bn ‎barrels.‎ [ PEDEC Website [] ]

However, production has been on the ‎decline because of loss of pressure and ‎oil extraction, so that current output is ‎‎180,000 barrels a day.

With injection of 3.6 billion cubic feet of gas per day (20 trillion cubic feet of ‎gas in tolal) from the south pars field and ‎subsequent buildup of pressure, an ‎additional quantity of 1.2 billion barrels of oil ‎will be produced. It is also estimated ‎that daily crude oil output of the field ‎will increase to 300,000 barrels a day.‎ [ PEDEC Website [] ]

Project consists of three main parts;


Development of South Pars phases 6, 7 and 8.


The 504-km long, 56-inch pipeline for transfer of sour gas from the South Pars gas field phases 6,7 and 8 to be injected to Aghajari oilfield.


Installation of a gas-compression ‎station, drilling of 19 new wells, work ‎over of 3 existing wells for gas ‎injection, installing pipelines on 2 ‎existing gas injecting wells. [ PEDEC Website [] ]
