Iraq expects gas discoveries in new concession areas

New concession areas announced recently by Iraq are expected to lead to new gas discoveries that will boost the country’s natural gas resources, an Iraqi official was reported on Friday as saying.

Mohammed Najm, assistant director of the Oil Licensing Department at the Iraqi Oil Ministry, said it would be the first time to explore for oil and gas in Western Iraq, mainly in Al-Anbar, the country’s largest Governorate that borders Saudi Arabia and Jordan.
