The Iraqi Cabinet has approved the renewal of two contracts at the Majnoon oil field.
Chinese company Anton Oilfield Services Group (Antonoil) is to continue to provide Integrated Field Management, while the American company KBR will provide Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM).
The decision allows for the extension of the contracts for two more years, with an option to increase that to three years.
