MOSCOW, August 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian oil company Gazprom Neft is continuing operations in Iraqi Kurdistan, but it is ready to evacuate employees, a representative told ITAR-TASS on Monday.

“The company has a plan involving personnel evacuation in case the situation deteriorates, but this is not happening now. The company is following closely how the events are unfolding in the region,” the official said.

Islamic State guerillas who represent Iraqi religious minority Yazidis have continued moving towards the capital of Kurdistan Arbil by Monday with Bagdad unable to stop them even after a US intervention.

Gazprom Neft has exploration and development licenses for three deposits in the region, where it began drilling in early August 2014.
