Experts believe that the recent visit of Prime Minister Haider Abadi to the French capital Paris was to launch the green light for France to return after a long absence. France was Iraq's most important partner in the volume of trade in the 1970s and 1980s, but its role declined due to economic sanctions imposed on Iraq after its invasion of Kuwait. Since 2004, France has resumed its limited economic activity and Paris has canceled some 4.8 billion euros of its old debt on Baghdad in 2005 and 2008 under the Paris Club. This amounts to 80 percent of the debt owed to France. In the year 2015 the level of trade increased somewhat to 1.26 billion euros, and the volume of French exports to Iraq about 430 million euros, which indicates that the share of France in the Iraqi market remained modest, trade with France did not exceed one percent of foreign trade Of Iraq.

Baker Hughes Energy Services said late Friday that drilling companies had cut the number of drilling platforms by five per week in the week ending October 13, bringing the total to 743 diggers, the lowest since early June. Oil and gas production in the Kirkuk region is going on as usual, despite an Iraqi military operation to wrest control of the region from the Peshmerga forces, an oil ministry official said on Monday.

"We have seen a decline in surplus stocks, and we have seen the price improve, and I think everyone should be pleased with this outcome," he said. "I think we should focus on commitment instead of extending the agreement." OPEC meets in Vienna on Nov. 30 to decide on production policy. Vadim Yakovlev, deputy chief executive of Russian energy company Gazprom Petroleum, said in an interview that the company was unhappy about the agreement to cut global crude production because it forced it to curb its ambitious plans to increase production. Yakovlev said the company, the fastest growing Russian oil producer in terms of production, considers the deal to be short-lived. He added that Gazprom's operations in the Middle East were of "strategic importance" and that they planned to increase their presence there. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other major producers, including Russia, have agreed to cut production by about 1.8 million barrels per day until the end of March 2018. There are mixed signals about the possibility of extending the agreement, which Russian President Vladimir Putin indicated the possibility of extending it to the end of next year.
