El Waha Petroleum Co. (previously known as OWAPCO) is studying the implementation of water injection project in collaboration with Weatherford Company.

The project targets the water injection of specific layers of the exploratory and development wells in Qarun Field, in its acquisition area in West Qarun, as El Waha is turning some of its producing wells to water injection operating wells.

According to official source, the company plans to install water injection pipelines from offshore well at Qarun Field to water injection wells. The first phase of this project is scheduled to start during the Q2 of the current fiscal year of 2010-2011.

It is worth mentioning that El Waha is a joint venture company between EGPC and Sahara Petroleum Services Company (SAPESCO).
