Project Description

According to bank documents, the Project involves the expansion of gas production and processing operations (the “KM250A Plant”) which will be located adjacent to the existing gas processing plant, near Khor Mor in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The Project will be designed to gather, process and transport natural gas through an existing pipeline network. Liquefied petroleum gas will be produced as a by-product and it will be transported through trucks. Construction of the KM250A Plant will be within the existing Pearl Petroleum’s site boundary and up to five new flowlines will transport raw gas from new production wells to the KM250A Project site. The Project, which will be operated by Pearl Petroleum, involves the initial extraction and ultimate production of approximately 2.5 million tons per annum (MTPA) of natural gas.
