Amal Field

The Amal Field is located in the Sirte basin and is Harouge’s largest and most important oil field. Amal field covers a large area of approximately 35 x 120 km. It neighbours 10 other concessions which are operated by Gulf Oil, Wintershall Libya Ltd, and Azwaitina.

Harouge’s Amal field, in addition to its production significance, it also serves other oil operators in the area in storing and forwarding crude oil to the Ras Lanuf port. In addition, crude oil from Gulf Oil’s Messla Field is pumped via a 30 inch pipeline to the RASCO refinery, which is located adjacent to the Ras Lanuf Terminal.

The Amal field area produces approximately 400,000 barrels per day of crude oil which amounts to about one third of Libya’s national production.

The Amal Field is Harouge’s principal field in the region with the first achieved in November 1959. Harouge’s concession consists of eight reservoirs ranging in depth from 2,300 to 12,000 ft. Due to the varying depth of the reservoir and the operational challenges encountered, Harouge implements various extraction technologies in the area.
