Iraqi Cabinet approves BP Plan to spin off Rumaila

By John Lee.

The Iraqi cabinet has approved a plan to restructure the ownership of the giant Rumaila oilfield.

The field will be taken over by the newly-created Basra Energy Company (BECL), which in turn will be owned by BP and the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC).

According to a statement from the Ministry of Oil, it appears that the CNPC interest will be held through the company's subsidiary, PetroChina.
