Member of the Parliamentary Oil and Natural Resources Committee, Kazem Al-Touki, confirmed today, Friday, the difficulty of resolving the oil and gas law and passing it within Parliament.

Al-Touki told Al-Maalouma, “The oil and gas law was supposed to see the light with the advent of the new year and the beginning of the first legislative term of the third legislative year of Parliament, especially with there being a serious effort to legislate it.”

He added, “The government program included resolving the oil and gas law, and there is seriousness in this regard, but there are some obstacles placed by the region that prevented the law from being completed and presented to Parliament for a vote.”

He stressed the need “to resolve some matters with the region before proceeding with the law, the most important of which is the disputed oil areas between Baghdad and Erbil, which must be resolved first and then move towards approving it.”
