Eni was awarded the license for the development of the Zubair super giant field in Iraq, The license has been awarded to an Eni-led consortium (with Eni as Operator), consisting of the US Occidental Petroleum Corporation and Korea Gaz Corporation. The Zubair field is one of the largest fields in Iraq and currently produces 195,000 barrels of oil per day. By 2020, through the field's expansion plan, production is expected to reach a plateau level of 850,000 barrels of oil per day. The expansion plan includes the drilling of more than 200 wells, the construction of treatment facilities and the required collection network, as well as the refurbishment of the existing plants.
