Exxon in talks with Iraq over oil operations
- Iraq: Tuesday, January 22 - 2013 at 06:23
The chairman of US-based Exxon Mobil has met with Iraq's prime minister Nuri al-Maliki for talks on its oil operations that are at the heart of a dispute between Baghdad and the autonomous Kurdistan region, Reuters has reported. The talks come as the US major is in the process of pulling out of its stake in the huge West Qurna-1 oilfield in the south, after clashing with Baghdad over its Kurdistan deals in the north. Exxon has angered Iraq's central government by signing deals with the Kurdistan enclave, which Baghdad calls illegal contracts that risk the US company's operations in the country's southern oilfields.
