The Parliamentary Oil, Gas and Resources Committee recommended, today, Tuesday, to address the state of pollution resulting from the work of the Dora refinery, while calling for the subjection of oil companies operating in the region to the federal authority.
Member of the committee, Representative Muhannad Al-Khazraji, told the official news agency, Mawazine News, that "the Parliamentary Oil, Gas and Wealth Committee hosted the advanced cadre of the Ministry of Oil, in order to discuss the suspended laws and legislation."
Al-Khazraji added that "the hosting included a discussion of the problems facing the work of oil companies, as well as a discussion of the ability to increase oil production for companies, and the demand of oil to seek the assistance of cadres and local technical expertise and not to rely on foreign labor."
He stressed, "The committee is going to legislate laws related to the oil sector, the most important of which is the draft oil and gas law, which was referred from previous to current sessions," calling on the Ministry of Oil to "address the pollution situation resulting from the work of the Dora refinery and the toxic waste that it raises in the airspace of the capital, Baghdad."
He pointed out that "the committee touched on the issue of the region's oil and the need to move in this regard in order to subject the oil companies operating in the region to the federal authority, as stipulated by the Iraqi law and constitution and the recent Federal Court decision that obligated the regional government to hand over oil imports to the Federal Ministry of Oil."
