Wood Group Intetech completes acid gas reinjection project for MOL Group in Kurdistan Region of Iraq

6th January 2015: Wood Group Intetech (WG Intetech), a world leader in well integrity management, has successfully completed a six-month project for MOL Group, an international integrated oil and gas company, headquartered in Budapest, Hungary. 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.

Renowned for its expertise in materials selection, particularly in high concentration hydrogen sulphide environments, WG Intetech was awarded the contract by MOL Group following a competitive tender process. The MOL development was technically challenging, requiring WG Intetech to mobilise a team of experts across several disciplines to ensure the success of the project.

“Acid gas reinjection involves handling high pressure gas with a high concentration of hydrogen sulphide,” says 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.”
