The American Ambassador: Benefiting from the oil and gas of the Kurdistan region will help Iraq towards independence in the field of energy

The US Ambassador to Iraq, Alina Romanowski, confirmed that benefiting from the oil and gas of the Kurdistan region will help Iraq towards independence in the field of energy.

Romanowski said in a tweet on the X platform: ‘In preparation for the Prime Minister’s visit to the United States, I discussed with Federal Oil Minister Hayan Abdul-Ghani Iraq’s independence in the field of energy for the benefit of the Iraqis.’

The American Ambassador added: “Benefiting from the oil and gas found in the Kurdistan region of Iraq can help Iraq on its path toward energy independence.”

It is noteworthy that the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity intends to purchase gas from the Kormor field in Sulaymaniyah Governorate in the Kurdistan region to meet the needs of production stations ‘in the northern region.’

Ministry Spokesman Ahmed Musa previously stressed to the Kurdish Rudaw media network the need for ‘gas to meet the local need of the Kurdistan region first, and if there is an increase, there is no doubt that the Ministr
y of Electricity is looking forward to benefiting from the surplus quantity and purchasing it.’

Kurdistan Regional Gas constitutes 50% of Iraq’s production, according to a previous statement made by the Deputy Minister of Natural Resources in the Kurdistan Regional Government, Ahmed Al-Mufti.

The Deputy Minister of Natural Resources in the Kurdistan Regional Government pointed out that “the Kurdistan Region’s oil production constitutes perhaps 10% of the total Iraqi oil production, but the Kurdistan Region’s gas constitutes 50% of the natural gas production in Iraq.”

In this context, he explained that ‘Iraq produces 1.4 billion cubic feet, while the Kurdistan region produces 0.7 billion cubic feet, and within six months to a year it will be able to produce 60% of the gas’ in Iraq, noting that the Kurdistan region’s production ‘is not associated gas.’ .
