An official security source in Iraqi Oil Intelligence said on Tuesday that four laptop computers were stolen from the legal department of the South Oil Company and were smuggled into Kuwait, and that the company didn’t take any legal action against those involved.
According to the report from AK News, the source, who preferred anonymity, said that “the smuggled computers held information on special projects for South Oil Company sites, including the drilling of new oil wells, statements of exploration for discovered oil fields, and the quantities of oil exported from the southern fields.”
“Such violations can not be disregarded, and the South Oil Company should take action against those reponsible; this is one of the most important national oil companies,” the source said.
The same source had revealed earlier the presence of drilling operations in Iraq’s Safwan border area in Basra (550 km south of Baghdad) by the Kuwaiti side, without any intervention by the South Oil Company to protect Iraq’s National oil wealth.
