Cumulative production at the West Qurna-2 field has reached 100 MMt of oil as part of successful implementation of Phase 1 of the project. With 184 wells drilled at the field, the average daily production rate is 400,000 bbl.

In 2018, the company started Phase 2 of the field's development which envisages  growth in daily production to 480,000 bbl in 2020 and to a plateau of 800,000 bpd in 2025. In January 2019, the drilling of 28 wells began on well pad #4. As of today, contracts have been signed to drill 57 production wells, including 54 at the Mishrif and 3 at the Yamama formations.
