Natural Resources (Oil and Gas) Legal Service

Where Law and Business Meet.

The Iraq country is one of the major oil and gas suppliers in the world. Being and an active member at the OPEC helped the country to export the oil and gas to the international market. After the toppling of ex-regime many renowned international oil and gas companies started investing in the country such as Exon Mobile, Shell, Chevron, Russian Gazprom Neft Company, Dana Gas and many others.

The Kurdistan Region is also an exciting and great place to invest, with over 25 International Oil Companies (IOCs) operating and over 40 active Production Sharing Contracts (PSCs). With production set to increase to over a million barrels per day soon, and drilling set to grow again following an industry slowdown in 2014 and 2015, the demand for oilfield services is set to grow too. To explore for the natural resources requires good knowledge about the legal procedures and regulations of Kurdistan Region and Iraq governments’ natural resources laws and regulations.
