LUKOIL has begun supplying computers and other equipment for schools of Madeina and Izzaldin-Salim municipalities under the social program of West Qurna-2 project.
The program aims at developing facilities of educational, medical and sports institutions in the districts bordering on the contract area.
This work is based on agreements concluded with the administrations of Madeina, Izzaldin-Salim and Al-Qurna municipalities. In 2013 LUKOIL will finance the purchase of computers and equipment for 32 schools in the region.
In addition, 10 classes will be arranged and equipped for high school students within the existing elementary schools, modern equipment was provided for central municipal hospitals and sports centers and a number of other social projects were implemented. All projects are being implemented by Iraqi contractors selected as a result of municipal tenders.

Another 345 Iraqis receive training in a training center established by LUKOIL.
