EPEDECO, the foreign partner of West Bakr Petroleum Company, bough a new Workover machine to isolate the water layers from the crude oil layers in the explored wells of the company.

Egypt Oil and Gas newspaper learned that the company targets the utilization of a new technology known as Water Shop, which will alleviate the process of extracting the crude oil. This procedure seeks to cover the shortfall that happens in the tank as a result of water production.

It is worth mentioning that the West Bakr Company is a joint venture between the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) and Japanese EPEDECO.
