The project saw WG Intetech develop a detailed design for an acid gas reinjection well on MOL Group’s Akri-Bijeel field in Iraq. The scope of the agreement included well design and comprehensive materials selection for all well components.

“Acid gas reinjection involves handling high pressure gas with a high concentration of hydrogen sulphide,” said Dr Liane Smith, managing director and founder of WG Intetech.

“This can lead to an increased safety risk if the correct materials are not selected at the design stage, and requires an intense focus on achieving well integrity. There are currently very few companies in the world that offer this level of experience.”
