Managing director of Iranian Central Oil Fields Company (ICOFC) Alireza Zeighami said Iran and Iraq have come to an agreement to provide a Master Development Plan (MDP) for the development of 5 shared oilfields.
According to the Mehr News Agency, Zeighami said devising such a comprehensive plan aims to attain further information to develop the shared oilfields in the near future; though, he did not name any of these 5 shared fields.
Iran and Iraq have different legal and contractual systems to develop their oil and gas fields. Once a common ground is established between the two nations, development of the shared border fields can be on the agenda
