Tatweer Petroleum: engineering growth and prosperity in the Kingdom of Bahrain

tatweer2jpgTatweer Petroleum is the upstream oil operator of the Kingdom of Bahrain, whose goal is to increase the production of oil and the availability of gas to meet the future energy demands of the Kingdom

The preliminary results of the test wells at Khalij Al Bahrain Basin (KAB), where Bahrain discovered a large repository of tight oil in 2018, are expected in the second quarter of 2020. The resulting data will be used to update models in order to aid in planning the development further and attracting potential collaboration with investors and international oil companies (IOCs).

The first appraisal wells of the KAB field have been drilled in 2019. The preliminary results of the KAB test wells are expected in the second quarter of 2020. The plan is to drill additional appraisal wells over the next few years. The number of future appraisal wells to be drilled will depend on the resulting data from studies conducted on the currently drilled wells.

In addition, the discovery of 10 to 20 tcf of natural gas in the Pre-Unayzah reservoir is a welcome development which aims to meet the increasing gas demands of the Kingdom of Bahrain.

The drilling of the first two pre-Unayzah wells is underway. Drilling operations have been projected to be completed by mid-2020. Tatweer Petroleum continues to maintain oil and gas production levels with remarkable achievements that include the commissioning of the Central Gas Dehydration Facility and drilling of additional oil and non-associated gas wells.

The year 2019 also marked the start of a successful trial to drill unconventional crude production wells in cooperation with a renowned service company. The Gas Distribution Network Mapping Project is currently in the evaluation phase and once completed, a winning bidder will be selected to begin the execution of the project, which is scheduled to commence some time in the year 2020. With regards to safety, Tatweer Petroleum staff achieved one year without lost time incidents in 2019, a significant safety milestone.

Tatweer Petroleum continues to work on various crude oil and gas production enhancement projects to maintain, if not increase, production, utilising the latest oil exploration, production, and recovery technologies whilst upholding its commitment to the highest standards of health, safety, and environmental protection, and the development of Bahraini nationals.
