Japanese Firm Wins $4bn Iraq Project

By John Lee.

Iraq's Council of Ministers has approved a contract with Japan's JGC Corporation to build a 55,000-bpd refinery in Basra province.

According to a statement from the Ministry of Oil, the new plant will create 7,000 jobs, in addition to 70,000 during the construction phase.

The General Manager of the South Refineries Company (SRC), Hussam Wali, said construction is hoped to start early next year, and be completed within four years.

The $4-billion project will be funded by a loan from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

    Congratulations JGC. I still take pride when I was a member in your EPC commissioning team. It was a great experience working with your world class commissioning managers and management style. Wish you more power and success in the years to come😃

    JAICA is great and did support lots of good projects worldwide that lasts more than decades.

    hopefully our governments could cooperate better on development.
