- The project involved drilling 420 wells and building four oil processing facilities and two more for gas. More than 28,000 workers and 26 contractors worked at Khurais.
- The field needs two million barrels per day of water injection but lies 190 km from Aramco's Qurayyah seawater treatment plant. That plant was expanded and pipelines built to pump the water needed from the Gulf to the fields. Aramco drilled 120 wells alone for water injection.
Last year, I related that the original plan was for 310 wells including 167 producers, 125 injectors, and 17 observation wells. So unless they decided they needed 100 more observation wells, the balance is for a lot more producers.
