The Media Office of the Arabian Gulf Oil Company (AGOCO) confirmed the occurrence of two leaks in the flow line linking the block station and the main pumping station in the Al-Bayda oil field, and another leak in the main line linking the Masala-Al-Sarir fields. It stated that the leaks were caused by corrosion.
Pipeline leaks fixed
It explained that all safety measures were taken and that the leak sites were secured to work on fixing them by isolating the maintenance operations area. Engineers and technicians began to stop the leaks after maintaining the pipes. The valves were reopened, and the line was returned to work after ensuring that there was no leakage allowing the continuation of the pumping process to maintain production rates.
Bengdara following up leak incidents
The Media Office added that the head of the National Oil Corporation (NOC), Farhat Bengdara, was following up on the incidents as soon as they were reported and was directly aware of the maintenance operations to restore production to its normal levels.
All AGOCO fields are operating normally
The AGOCO Media Office highlighted the full support that it receives from the NOC to enable it to maintain the current levels of production in its fields. It confirmed that all its fields are operating normally without interruption since the return of oil fields and ports to production and export.
