We are getting towards the sharp end of the Baghdad / Kurdistan Oil & Gas law discussions which started as early as Jan 2011. Originally they had expected to conclude the law by June 30th of this year. But as many will recall during the elections – politics in Iraq is far from simple.
CEO’s Tony Hayward of Vallares/Genel and Todd Kozel of Gulf Keystone both recently implied that they thought a successful conclusion to the Oil & Gas law would come this year. But they would say that wouldn’t they!
The passing of an Oil & Gas law will be of major importance to companies operating in Kurdistan but more importantly – it will be huge for the Iraqi people as a whole, who deserve a more decisive and cooperative government looking after ‘their’ interests.
The poll ends on Sept 30th – so vote away.
