Majnoon Oilfield

Majnoon in Southern Iraq is one of the world’s largest oil fields. As operator, Shell is developing the field together with Petronas and Iraq’s Missan Oil Company. Our CUBIC partner Masseera Industrial Switchgear FZE successfully met the strict requirements for supplying a 400V switchboard for the development in the oilfield. 

The Majnoon project

The Majnoon project consisted of a two phase development. Phase I consists of reaching First Commercial Production (FCP) and Phase II focuses on the development of the full field (FFD). In line with a commitment to safety an extensive de-mining programme cleared more than 57 kilometres of land with 16,000 leftover explosive remnants of war (ERW), all with a perfect safety record.

Critical success factors

The most urgent criteria put forward by Shell was to  meet a very short delivery time and secondly to design, integrate, test and supply a type tested, form 4, draw-out switchboard in compliance to the Shell DEP Standard. Moreover, the switchboard should comply to the requirements of internal arc fault tests in accordance to IEC TR 61641:2008.

With the support from CUBIC, Masseera met all requirements by applying the documented, tested and verfied Modular System to the project. Along with Masseera, CUBIC Global Training certified staff members all issues in terms of projecting, instruction and asembly were met and documented. 

In particular the flexibility of the system assisted Masseera in engineering, designing and integrating the switchboard in compliance to the requirements of the contract and within record time.
