Date: 05 March, 2018

BASRA - Iraq's second-largest producing oil field is wrapping up a 200,000 barrel per day (bpd) processing facility which, along with a drilling program, will enable it to increase production by 65 percent in four years.

Zubair, operated by Italy's Eni, produced an average of around 425,000 bpd in January, according to two Iraqi oil officials in Basra, second only to the BP-CNPC-operated Rumaila field, at 1.465 million bpd.
