The Diwaniya province has achieved revenues of around ID2 billion [$1.7m] from refining oil.
“These revenues are for the year 2010,” a local source told Aswat al-Iraq news agency on Thursday.
He explained that the amount is not big or important to the province.
“The Iraqi law has not given Diwaniya oil revenues as other provinces; therefore, services in Diwaniya will lag far behind other areas of Iraq,” the source added.
The achieved amount (ID2b) will be used to execute limited service projects in Diwaniya (180 km south of Baghdad).
