Halfaya gas capture project makes progress

New infrastructure will process 300 million scf/d of associated gas by mid-2024, decreasing the wasteful practice of flaring and increasing feedstock for power generation.

The project is being built by Chinese state firm China Petroleum Engineering & Construction Corporation (CPECC) on behalf of Halfaya field operator PetroChina, the listed arm of the state-owned China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC).
