The fields to be offered for re-development will be the main crude oil producers, including Gachsaran, Agha Jari
, Marun and Karanj-Parsi - as well as those sharing the huge Bangestan reservoir: Ahwaz, Abe-Teymour and Mansuri (see omt15IranFieldsApr8-13).
The Bid Boland plant processes 800 MCF/d of gas from the Agha Jari

Decentralised under a holding company, NIOC South (also known as NISOC) has four geographical units: Marun, Karun, Masjid-e-Suleiman and Agha Jari
Phases 6-8, to produce 80 MCM/d of sour gas for injection into Agha Jari
An important volume of South Pars gas production is dedicated to the depleting Agha Jari
Phases 6,7 and 8 are identified as key projects for supplying gas for reinjection into three key oil reservoirs requiring pressure maintenance - Agha Jari
, Ahwaz and Mansouri.
