ExxonMobil Signs Agreement with Iraq to Redevelop and Expand West Qurna-1 Field
The agreement was signed in Baghdad by representatives of the Ministry of Oil and the West Qurna-1 contractor consortium in the presence of the Iraq Oil Minister Hussain al-Shahristani and Rob Franklin, president of ExxonMobil Upstream Ventures. The consortium members are ExxonMobil as the lead contractor with 60 percent interest, Oil Exploration Company (owned by the Iraq government) with 25 percent interest, and Royal Dutch Shell with 15 percent interest.
"We are pleased to sign the agreement for the redevelopment and expansion of the West Qurna-1 field and look forward to working with the government of Iraq and the South Oil Company on implementation of this important project," said Franklin.
Franklin said ExxonMobil also would continue discussions with the government on other opportunities to assist Iraq in developing the country's resources.
ExxonMobil said it would apply its industry-leading operating capabilities and innovative technology to provide Iraq with maximum benefits from the field. ExxonMobil also plans to focus on the recruitment and development of local employees, the development of qualified local vendors for the supply of goods and services, and on supporting corporate citizenship initiatives in health, education and infrastructure.
