Russia’s Gazprom Neft has become the latest large oil company to enter the Kurdish region of Iraq, taking stakes in two blocks and risking its operatorship of the 3 billion barrel Badra field in the south of the country.


 

The oil division of Russian gas export monopoly Gazprom will take a 40% share in the large Garmian block in the far south-east of the Kurdish region under a third party assignment option retained by the Kurdish regional government.


Canadian firm WesternZagros, which is the other production sharing contract participant with a 40% share, will remain the project operator until the commencement of the development period mandated by the PSC.
