The Iraqi province of Dhi Qar (Thi Qar) may get it's own oil company, according to a report from AIN.
The Deputy Prime Minister with responsibility for Energy Affairs, Hussein al-Shahristani (pictured), discussed the issue with the Deputy Chairman of Dhi-Qar Provincial Council, Hadi Mohan, at his office in Baghdad.
Shahristani instructed to expedite the building of the Nasiriya Oil Refinery, which will have a capacity of 300,000 barrels per day.
Also on the agenda was the idea fo a 500 MW power station, from which half the output would go to the province and half to the national Grid.
