For his part, the Undersecretary of the Oil Exploration and Production Authority, Eng. Abdullatif Al-Dhufri, confirmed, in a statement to Almasirah, "It was possible to re-inject the gas to raise the level of oil production or, alternatively, to raise the rate of electricity generation," adding that dependence on the foreign operator in Sector 10 and S2 hindered the investment of huge quantities of gas.
He said that the production-sharing agreements in sectors 10 and S2 stipulated that gas should not be burned, but that Total and OMV companies permanently bypassed that.
He pointed out that oil was discovered in sectors 10 and S2 accompanying gas, however, the facilities were not allocated to absorb the gas, and this is the reason for burning it.
In turn, the former spokesman for the Ministry of Oil, Hassan Al-Zaidi, explained that the losses of gas flaring are multiple and are not limited to economic ones only, but also include its environmental and health effects.
On Tuesday, the media secretary of the Supreme Economic Committee, Ibrahim Al-Saraji, confirmed Monday that the US-Saudi mercenaries brought in international companies in an attempt to loot an amount of oil through the port of Al-Dhabba in Hadramout Governorate.
