SICIM S.p.A. awarded major gas utilisation project in Iraq

Over the 12 years of its presence in Iraq, SICIM successfully implemented several oil and gas projects, not only supporting the expansion of the national energy infrastructure, but also providing jobs and professional development opportunities to local communities creating a mutually beneficial and sustainable business environment.

SICIM has expanded its portfolio of EPC projects in Iraq with a new plant, which includes the design, procurement, construction and commissioning of a gas sweetening unit, critical for sustainable power generation at the West Qurna-2 field, and raw gas compression and dehydration facilities that will condition raw gas for its subsequent export to the downstream centralized gas hub for final processing. The ambitious project, planned to be completed within 33 months, provides employment to hundreds of qualified and semi-skilled Iraqi citizens. Dozens of local Iraqi subcontractors and service providers will have the opportunity to work on the project. By minimizing gas flaring, the plant will play an important role in the decarbonization of the Basra region, as well as help reduce Iraq’s dependence on imported gas.
