Gazprom Neft Finishes Construction of Housing Complex in Iraq

Gazprom Neft has finished building the first phase of a housing complex at the Badra oil field, for which the company is the development operator. The permanent complex for workers involved in developing the oil field can accommodate around 100 people. The construction of infrastructure facilities will continue in years 2012-2013, when oil production is expected to begin in Badra. The camp capacity will be extended to 450 people.

The complex currently includes 80 comfortable homes for workers, as well as offices, a health clinic, utility rooms, sports facilities, and independent energy and water supply facilities.

The creation of the complex is the latest phase in preparations for the main stage of developing the oil field, where the drilling of the first wells is expected to be completed in early 2012.
