Petrographic analysis of the Araej suggests a diagenetic path which includes neomorphism and recrystallization of allochems and marine cements to low Mg-calcite, dissolution and partial dolomitization of muddy lithologies.
It was the biggest structure to come on stream in several years. The wells were plugged and exploration work was suspended until the war was over in Dukhan was in early said to have 2. BP dropped out in earlyafter having made a bid, and sold its 7.
Diyab is the latest to be developed. DSC continued to provide services on temporary basis. The gas is gathered at a recycling plant built at Khatiya, where condensate and NGL are stabilised into product streams. Beneath the Dukhan oil zones lies the Khuff, a reservoir of non-associated gas found in by QPC at depths of about 10, feet.
But the contract, signed in latewas not renewed when it expired on Jan.
Production resumed in The first shipment of crude oil out of Qatar took place in December Diyab lies on the southern flank of Dukhan. The Upper Araej Member consists predominantly of variably cemented grainstones and packstones with minor wackestones. The Dukhan Alliance DA involved five parties sharing the rewards and risks of their work: Dukhan contains a Khuff non-associated gas reservoir.
Work on the three-year contract began in latewith the data to be used for the development and long-term recovery prospects of the field.
The DCFUP involved installation of a crude oil stabilisation system, three-phase separation plants to remove produced water and improve the content of the crude oil, effluent water treatment units, a centralised gas dehydration plant, and upgrades of the control, instrumentation, power and fire-fighting systems.
Copyright Gale, Cengage Learning.The largest producing oil field on the west coast of the Qatar peninsula is the Dukhan field, operated by Qatar Petroleum (QP).
Offshore production is mainly via Exploration and Production Sharing Agreements (EPSA) with foreign oil companies in partnership with QP on behalf of the Government of Qatar.

Qatar’s oil exploration began in at the Dukhan field. Commercial exportation from the field started between and Below data covers Population (million inhabitants) Land area (1, sq km) Population density (inhabitants per sq km) GDP per capita ($).
Abstract The onshore Dukhan oil field of Qatar Petroleum has been under production since the 's. Water is injected to maintain reservoir pressure, and a reservoir monitoring program has been established to monitor movements of oil-water (OW.
The Dukhan field is a major oil field in Qatar discovered in ; it contains more than wells producing from 4 major reservoirs. It has a complex history of production & development strategies, starting with natural pressure depletion for more.
The Dukhan field is under water flooding for secondary recovery, and changing water salinities resulting from the mixing of salty formation and fresh injection water make any resistivity-based calculation of remaining oil saturation a difficult task.Download
