SNC-Lavalin’s scope will include the provision of engineering, design activities and project support services for the development of the Mishrif and Yamama formations of the West Qurna 2 oil field, as well as training and continued professional development for local Iraqi professionals.

The West Qurna Phase 2 oil field is located in the southern part of Iraq, 65 km north-west of Basra, a major seaport city, and is one of the world's largest fields.

The project is split into three main phases, two phases for the Mishrif formation and one for the Yamama formation. The required surface facilities for Yamama and Mishrif include major elements such as well pads, oil gathering flowlines, headers and trunklines, a central processing facility and its associated utilities and offsites, oil/gas/liquid petroleum gas export pipelines, additional storage tanks at an existing facility, power plant, water intake and supply pipelines.

“We continue to build on our long-term relationship with LUKOIL and to help them realise their projects successfully,” said Christian Brown, president for oil and gas at SNC-Lavalin.

The company has worked closely with national and international oil companies and Iraq’s Ministry of Oil on projects across the value chain, ranging from professional services to engineering and delivery of some of the world’s most complex projects.
