{Economic: Al Furat News} A government official said that Iraq is considering buying gas from the countries of Qatar and Algeria to operate electric power production stations, which represent the value of the electricity it produces about 40 percent of the total daily energy production in Iraq, which amounts to approximately 18 thousand megawatts, at a time. The country still needs more than 35,000 megawatts to cover the daily need for electricity throughout its cities.
A spokesman for the Ministry of Electricity, Ahmed al-Abadi, said in a press statement that Iraq's problems with importing Iranian gas are still continuing.
Al-Abadi added that "Iraq is currently dependent on Iranian gas to operate units with a production capacity of 6,500 megawatts of the country's electrical system, and that the decline of Iranian gas has caused a decline in the rates of electrical power production in Iraq."
He said that a delegation from the Ministry of Electricity went to Iran to negotiate over previous debts owed by Iraq, estimated at two billion and 600 million dollars, as a result of the supply of Iranian gas to Iraq.

He stated that the Ministry of Oil is striving to fill the shortage in the supply of gas supplied, and that the ministry has plans to rehabilitate some gas fields in Iraq.
The statements of the government official are not considered the first of their kind about importing gas from countries other than Iran. Oil Minister Ihsan Abdul-Jabbar, at the end of last April, confirmed the government’s intention to import gas from Egypt through Syrian territory, in reference to the possibility of operating the pipeline The Iraqi-Syrian port of Baniyas, known as the Arabic calligraphy, has stopped working since the eighties of the last century.

Talking about diversifying sources of gas purchase is not new, as it goes back to the government of Haider al-Abadi 2014-2018. However, a senior Iraqi official in Baghdad said, "The current trend, according to the reform paper, does not include going to conclude any new gas purchase contracts."
The official, who declined to be named, added that Iraq "is now heading for the completion of the Gulf electricity interconnection project with Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, as well as Jordan and Turkey, which are high-transmission quad lines that will compensate Iraq with at least 10,000 megawatts, which makes the need for gas not necessary."
