Oil and Gas Fields: Nasiriyah

Name: Nasiriyah, also known as Nasiriya.

Controlled by: Ministry of Oil (Baghdad).

Location: South of Baghdad

Reserves: 4.4 billion barrels of oil

Contract granted: While currently under state control, the development of the field was offered as part of a larger project, known as the Nasiriyah Integrated Project (NIP), which would include the contruction of a 300,000 bpd refinery. In January 2018, Iraq dropped the NIP, saying it will rely on a newly formed state oil company to develop the Nassiriya oil field, and leaving only the nearby refinery project for investors.
