The Crude Oil Export Facility Reconstruction Project  aims to stabilize and expand Iraq’s crude oil export capacity, a lifeline of the Iraqi economy, by constructing a pipeline connecting crude oil storage facilities to the offshore crude oil export terminal in Fao, Basrah in Southern Iraq.

The Project involves the development of two offshore valve station platforms, a 75 kilometer 48” oil pipeline and a Single Point Mooring system.

Permanent works under the contract which are required to be designed, procured, installed, tested and commissioned include both onshore and offshore block items, along with a range of temporary works eg. buildings, utilities, roads.

The project requires interfacing with the existing systems and other ongoing pipeline projects in the area.

Leighton Offshore is also responsible for integrating, testing, commissioning and staff training of the ongoing project’s operational personnel and putting the entire pipeline system into service.
