The Aghajari oil field is an iranian oil field located in Khuzestan Province. It was discovered in 1938 and developed by National Iranian Oil Company. It began production in 1940 and produces oil. The total proven reserves of the Aghajari oil field are around 30 billion barrels (3758×106tonnes), and production is centered on 300,000 barrels per day (48,000 m3/d).[1] The field is owned by state-owned National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) and operated by National Iranian South Oil Company (NISOC).[2] Aghajari Gas Injection Project is aimed at boosting production from this aging field.
