The West Rawdatain facility, which is part of three similar stations that were commissioned last January, will gradually contribute to the enhancement of free oil and gas recovery. The third and last station in East Rawdatain is expected to be commissioned in the next few months, which will allow for 500 MMSCFD of free gas production in the first quarter of the next fiscal year while light oil production is expected to rise by 200,000 BPD in the same period.
