American oil-services company Weatherford International announced on Monday that it has completed the drilling of 20 oil wells in southern Iraq, at oilfields including Rumaila and Bazergan.
Work is continuing at another 70 wells.
The company's Director, Ramzi al-Harithy, told Aswat al-Iraq news agency during the recent Oil & Gas Exhibition in Basra that his company has no connections with the U.S. company Halliburton in developing eastern Iraq’s Majnoon oilfield.
Bazergan oil field, 24 km to the east of Amara city, is expected to reach full capacity at 2,000-3,000 barrels per day. Drilling on the oil field began on 10th September this year.
