Northern Iraq’s Batna Oil Field in Nineveh Province has resumed production after 20 year stoppage, an official at Nineveh Oil Comission said on Tuesday,
The official expressed the hope that production would exceed 2,000 barrels per day (bpd).
“The comissioning of Batna Field, one of the oil fields in northwest Mosul’s Zummar town, stopped more than 20 years ago, shall add a new production energy, exceeding 2,000 bpd, in Nineveh Province,” the official, who asked not to be named, told Aswat al-Iraq News Agency.
The source said “Batna Oil Field had been rehabilitated using an Iraqi workforce from the state-owned North Oil Company”.
