Iraq Wants to Open Oil Border with Kuwait

Dhiya Jaafar, chief executive of Iraq’s state-run South Oil Co (SOC), has said the country seeks to open a special border crossing with neighbouring Kuwait for international oil firms working in the country, Reuters has reported.

The new border crossing would facilitate the inflow of equipment for the oil companies that secured contracts to develop Iraq’s oilfields, after complaints about the capacity of the country’s overwhelmed ports. “A solution that has been put forward is to set up a border point with Kuwait in Northern Rumaila related to the oil companies,” Jaafar told the news service.
