Iraqis Visit US to Study Gas-Capturing Technologies

By John Lee.

Iraq's deputy minister of gas affairs, Hamed Younis Saleh al-Zoba'ei, and Hillal Ali Ismaeel Mushtaq, Iraq's director of general of studies, conducted a three-day tour of North Dakota last week, visiting gas-processing facilities and meeting with state and industry leaders.

Julio Friedmann, the U.S. Energy Department's deputy assistant secretary for fossil energy, said:

"Iraq is unquestionably serious about reducing flaring ... They hope to learn from the experience in North Dakota."

Friedmann said using more natural gas for power generation in Iraq will help grow its economy and stabilize the country.
