Basra, Iraq - May 31, 2021


The China Petroleum Engineering & Construction Corporation (CPECC) subcontracted the civil works component of the Major Tie-Ins Degassing Station 8 (MTI-DS8) project to AWI. The MTI-DS8 connects new/ongoing major projects in DS8 (i.e., Produced Water, Industrial Water and Initial Oil Train projects) with the existing facilities in the station.


Valued at USD 3.5 million, AWI’s scope for the project includes the construction of foundations for the following:


  • Crude storages
  • Utility and separator pipe racks
  • Closed drain facilities
  • Process flare knock out drum and associated equipment


Subcontracting civil works to AWI for this important project demonstrates CPECC’s trust on the quality of AWI’s work as well as on the company’s ability to complete complex projects on schedule.


Started in May 2021, the project is expected to be completed by January 2022.
