BASRA, March 29. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian oil company Rosneft is considering several options for participating in oil projects in Iraq, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said on Saturday, March 29.
“Rosneft is considering participating in several projects in Iraq. Our companies always respect the laws of the countries where they work. Rosneft will do the same,” he said.
Rosneft is eyeing the possibility of joining the Nasiriyah project, which calls for extracting oil and building an oil refinery in Iraq.
The Russian company may also partner with American Exxon for a joint project in Iraq’s Kurdistan.
Dvorkovich also said several Russian energy companies, including Inter RAO and Technopromimport, might build thermal power plants in Iraq.
