Uruk Participates in 6th Basra Oil & Gas Event

Basra: Uruk Engineering and Contracting showcased its Engineering, Procurement and Contracting (EPC) capabilities at the 6th annual Basra Oil & Gas Exhibition and Conference held at the Basra International Fair Ground from February 3rd to 6th, 2016. The company’s participation marks the third time the contractor took part in the event; and it highlighted the completion of its Taji Power Plant Project as well as the Mansuriya Power Plant Project.

The exhibition also provided the firm with a platform to explore its expansion into related fields. “We have a strong financial position and technical expertise,” said Dr. Alaa Hussein who leads engineering; “and this has allowed us to consider entering projects such as the processing of flared gas or developing gas fields in consortium with international oil and gas firms working in Iraq.” He continued: “The exhibition gave us an opportunity to meet with potential partners and vendors in one location.”

Organizers state several thousand visitors came to the show, which received the support of H.E. Sabah Hassan Al Bazouni, President Basra Provincial Council; H.E. Majid Al-Nasrawi, Governor of Basraas; and Ali Shadad Al Faris, Chairman Oil and Gas Committee.

Uruk believes participation as well as speaking in such events is an important part of helping rebuild the Iraqi economy. The company’s directors have been featured guests at conferences organized by MEED and CWC in geographies as far afield as Amman, London, and Dubai, as well as Basra and Baghdad.

Uruk recently completed construction of the Mansuriya Power Plant; and it is ready to receive gas for commissioning. Managers from the firm were on hand in Basra to discuss details of one of the country’s largest power plant projects in recent years, with a capacity of 724 MW for phase 1.
