Well They Better Have It 'Hugged Out' And Worked Out


Because They Just Discovered A Whole Shiite Load More Oil In The South ...

500 billion barrels of oil reserves south
2/23/2015 0:00 
BAGHDAD - Hussein Tgb 

develop the oil industry represents an important focus to maximize the financial revenues of the country and providing the federal budget the necessary funds, which is supported by the ease of production of domestic oil fields. 

oil expert Mustafa al-Maliki between in an interview for the "morning", that "the South Oil Company to pay attention significant for the development of the productive process, and in light of the recent report issued by the International Energy Agency, containing expectations and prospects for future energy it, according to Oil Ministry data spread proven reserves across 66 fields with total oil reserves in these fields exceed 500 billion barrels

He pointed out that it means the average extraction coefficient of about 35 percent, and contains five fields above a giant in the south to 60 percent of the total proven reserves which each of the Rumaila, West Qurna, Zubair, crazy and river life. 

The other major fields container reserves are in the east of Baghdad in the middle, and the field of Kirkuk in the north, and there are about two-thirds of total reserves in the fields now run international companies, to include those reserves most of the biggest fields transactions extract higher, and this is reasonable evidence of how easily the potential development of these fields. " 

Maliki continued, saying: Perhaps the most important practical realities of the extractive, low cost of production per barrel in the industry oil of Iraq, especially in the most productive now the southern region, as characterized by fields above the giant being developed and work where now there is a huge exploration potential, and also simply geological situation compared with the giant fields or above a giant in other spots of the world, and the occurrence of all Iraqi fields in the land . 

and on the fields around Basra between it situated mostly in uninhabited and flat relatively lands, reducing the wells, pipelines and other facilities costs. 
Oil is characterized by product moderately do not need to be a specialist to develop, and can be pumped and circulated easily, since all the southern fields located in the places that are not difficult to access for coastal export facilities. 

What makes a relatively short main pipelines, (but high export paths much longer). 

This is the proximity of the port of export in terms of crude delivered to the market in the initial phase of the marketing of the advantages of oil and gas energy chain which is characterized by Iraq. 

A report by the International Energy Agency dealt with production conditions and forecasts from several angles, Ka existing contracts and laws prevailing constraints and logistics state of the global market. 

He said he could pick out the following text because of its importance requires contracts applicable occurrence of an unusual increase in oil production development plans Iraq over the coming years. 

These could increase comes from fields that are managed under the given technical service contracts through the national licensing rounds. 
It can also increase comes from fields operated by direct national oil companies and fields or potential areas within the scope of 
the partnership contracts in production in the Kurdistan Region. 

Based on a detailed search of the forty-six (46) of Iraqis, and found that - if all goes in all of them in accordance with the schedules envisaged Currently, the production capacity of the oil in Iraq can be up to 14.6 million barrels per day by 2020. 

, an estimated five-fold energy production achieved as of mid-year 2012, which amounted to 3 million barrels per day.

If this HCL moves without the vote of the political groups, then I can see it passing when oil reaches $65-70 dollars.  This may take place by the end of March until the fist of May.  Let's hope it passes much sooner than the end of the year.

Obviously no one has a Crystal ball Yota...  But in general theory (using the term loosely) , does the HCL actually have to be "completed" prior to an exciting RV?  Or just the HC Agreement generally written in the Gazette...  Along with the Budget, etc, etc..

Permission to take a stab at this one? Thanks!

The HCL, 140, Amnesty, Law of Accountability & Justice, Federal Court Act, or any of the other hot button laws you want to mention, I don't believe any of them are required to RV per se. What they are required for is stability. Prior to taking office Abadi agreed to a 21 line item list of demands presented by the Kurds and the Sunni. Many of the aforementioned items are found in said agreements plus more. None of that other stuff is required to RV either but the threat of a walkout will always be present less said agreements are written into law.

The guy with his finger on the big red RV button isn't going to even think about pressing it until these issues are solved because a post RV economy relies on a government that functions and a functioning government relies on unification. Unification relies on all factions being represented and included in the government. It is that which our RV relies upon not the passing of an HCL.

Permission Granted!   Thanks RFJ.   You have pretty much confirmed my basic understanding of it all being the noob that I am...  I guess my question was more about the in depth understanding of the HCA vs. HCL in which Yota graciously added some input.   I think that was confusing me.


Now...  Lets find that dude with the big red RV button, hold him down and epoxy his finger to it!
