Iraq’s Ministry of Oil is preparing to tender contracts to develop two non-associated gas fields in the Diyala governorate in the east of the country, a ministry official said on Tuesday.
The Khashim al-Ahmer and Jarabica gas field contracts may be incorporated into Iraq’s current licensing round or tendered separately, Abdulmahdy al-Ameedi, the ministry’s director general of upstream oil contracts and licensing rounds, said at the Iraq Petroleum conference in Berlin.
