He further announced inauguration of Mansouri oil field’s development project; “the oil project involves the repair and completion of 12 wells, construction and operation of desalination units as well as a 132-KV double-circuit power transition line," he noted.

Stressing that about 150 thousand barrels of oil will be added to the country’s oil production capacity by the operation of the three new plants, the official said, “accordingly, these desalination factories will have a daily capacity of 75 thousand, 30 thousand and 55 thousand barrels, respectively.”
