Gazprom Neft has said it has no problems in Iraq and does not feel that its work in the country is under threat.
Deputy CEO Vadim Yakovlev (pictured) told reporters on Tuesday:
“Of course we are worried because we operate there and our people are still working ... [but] we do not feel any impact yet as the company operates in the country’s calm regions and everything is in line with the plan.”
At the same time the company has contingencies in place to intensified security and even evacuate personnel if necessary.
