We do not produce and capture raw natural gas ourselves. The joint ventures that run the three giant oilfields of southern Iraq - Rumaila, Zubair and West Qurna 1 – deliver untreated natural gas to BGC from their wells.
Our role is to transport and treat natural gas, turning it into valuable products.
We deliver these finished products to South Gas Company, which is responsible for distributing them in the local market.
Our assets consist of:
OUR GAS GATHERING SYSTEMS
BGC operates a network of around 1,800 kilometres of natural gas, hydrocarbon liquids and industrial water pipelines. Natural gas and liquids are transported through these pipelines from where it is produced to our processing plants. We are inspecting and rehabilitating these pipelines, and we are building 300 kilometres of new pipelines to expand further our capacity.
We have nine compressor stations, which are distributed at intervals along our pipeline network. Their purpose is to compress the natural gas, thereby providing an increase in pressure for the natural gas to continue flowing towards the BGC processing plants. We are building nine new compressor stations, and whilst this work is being done we have installed three temporary compressors to increase gas flow and start to meet the needs of the people of southern Iraq for power as quickly as possible. more
