[size=52]Iraq is looking for clean alternative energy sources to generate electricity[/size]

[size=45]Translation: Hamed Ahmed[/size]
[size=45]The report confirmed Iraq's interest in moving to cleaner alternative energy sources, pointing out that their purpose is to generate electric power, stressing that the contracts signed in this field will reduce dependence on fossil fuels, while talking about wasting billions of dollars due to not benefiting from natural gas, revealing Having a plan to eliminate this waste within two or three years.[/size]
[size=45]The report of the Associated Press and the Climate News Network website, translated by (Al-Mada), stated that "Iraq is now setting its interest in moving to cleaner alternative energy sources to generate electric power by relying on available solar energy, in addition to projects to develop oil production."[/size]
[size=45]The report added, "A contract was recently signed with an international energy company to invest in three projects, one of which is the construction of a solar plant to generate electric power."[/size]
[size=45]He pointed out that "the French Total Energy Company signed last Sunday with Iraq a contract worth 27 billion dollars to invest in the production of oil, gas and solar electric energy at a time when the country is facing a severe crisis in the production of electric power."[/size]
[size=45]The report quotes "Total's director, Patrick Pouyanne, as saying that the ambition is to help Iraq build a more stable and sustainable future by developing the delivery of electric energy by exploiting the country's most sustainable natural resources."[/size]
[size=45]He also quoted "Oil Minister Ihsan Ismail, saying during the contract signing ceremony, which was attended by Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, that this is the largest investment in Iraq made by a foreign company, and the completion of these projects is the current challenge."[/size]
[size=45]The report pointed out that "new projects do not plan for new oil explorations despite Iraq's huge reserves of crude oil, which is what international oil companies are accustomed to," adding, "there is a trend towards cleaner sources of energy at a time when the world is struggling with high rates of gas emissions from fuel sources." Fossils, represented by oil and gas, are the main cause of climate change.[/size]
[size=45]He noted, "Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Ali Allawi, in a joint article for The Guardian newspaper last week, with the participation of the Executive Director of the Atomic Energy Agency, Fatih Birol, urged oil-producing countries and OPEC to move from power generation with fossil fuels to the use of friendly renewable energy." environment in power generation.[/size]
[size=45]The report stated, "Allawi believes that by taking advantage of an opportunity to limit the negative effects of climate change, it requires the countries of the world to make a fundamental change in the process of production and consumption of energy and reduce the burning of coal, oil and natural gas."[/size]
[size=45]The report continued, "Allawi and Energy Director Birol stated that the rise in temperatures that the world is witnessing is not a threat far from the countries of the Middle East and North Africa, but rather is a reality."[/size]
[size=45]He stressed, "The rise in temperature rates exacerbates the water scarcity crisis, and it is estimated that the temperature rise in Iraq is seven times faster than the rates of global temperature rise."[/size]
[size=45]The report continues, “Allawi and Energy Director Birol wrote in the transition to cleaner alternative energy, that a list of options for Iraq that it can follow in this field, starting from reaching to curb the burning of gas associated with the oil industry, which constitutes 40% of gas emissions, to the transition and transition to means of The most efficient renewable energy that leads to huge economic benefits for the country.” The report finds, "Iraq's signing of this contract will reduce its dependence on fossil fuels." He stated, "The French company Total had signed contracts with the Ministry of Oil to develop the Ratawi oil field in southern Iraq and to establish a processing and collection plant for natural gas from five oil fields in the south."[/size]
[size=45]They confirmed that "the French company also signed another necessary project to treat the waters of the Shatt al-Arab and pump it into depots in order to sustain oil production rates."[/size]
[size=45]The report talked about “another project signed with the Ministry of Electricity to build a solar power plant to generate electricity with a capacity of 1,000 megawatts.” According to the report, the director of the French company Total, Pouyanne, said that "these projects represent the company's ambition to support oil-producing countries such as Iraq in achieving the transition in the field of energy by combining natural gas production with solar energy to meet the increasing demand for electricity."[/size]
[size=45]And the report added, "Iraq urgently needs to develop the production of its domestic natural gas resources to cover the increased demands for electric power, especially during the high-temperature summer months."[/size]
[size=45]He stated, "The country is highly dependent on Iranian gas and the electricity it imports from, which has been subjected to obstacles in recent months for reasons related to unpaid outstanding debts and the increase in demand for electricity also inside Iran."[/size]
[size=45]He explained, "Oil Minister Ihsan Ismail had mentioned in an interview in June that he hoped to increase Iraq's gas production capacity to 3 billion cubic feet by 2025."[/size]
[size=45]The report warned, "The development of a gas production processing plant may bring Iraq a step closer to that goal, as Iraq currently imports 2 billion cubic feet of gas to meet its domestic needs."[/size]
[size=45]He stated, "The contract provides for the establishment of a gas complex capable of separating and treating associated natural gas from the Ratawi, West Qurna 2, Majnoon, Tuba and Luhais oil fields."[/size]
[size=45]The report continues, "Iraq currently lacks the means to collect this gas and it is burned in the atmosphere."[/size]
[size=45]Experts warn, according to the report, that "without exploiting this natural gas, Iraq will waste millions of dollars in revenues, and as soon as Iraq can process and collect gas, it will be able to feed power plants and fill the local need of electrical energy."[/size]
[size=45]The report concluded, that Iraq “plans to put an end to gas flaring during the next two or three years, while the World Bank estimates the quantities of gas that Iraq burns daily at up to 16 billion cubic meters.”[/size]
