    [size=52]Electricity seeks to add more than 12,000 megawatts through solar energy[/size]

    [size=45]The Minister of Oil, Adel Karim, confirmed that Iraq is seeking to obtain 12 and 500 megawatts through contracts concluded with international companies to produce solar energy, pointing to the continued need for gas supplied in revenue for a period of no less than five years.[/size]
    [size=45]Karim said in a television interview followed by (Al-Mada), that "the new plant that entered Maysan will be a qualitative and important addition to the energy and national system, with a size of 750 megawatts, and will use gas from the Halfaya field and in the future from the Bazarkan field."[/size]
    [size=45]He added, "The national grid is one and interconnected, and energy can be transferred across governorates," noting that "the biggest beneficiary of the new station is Maysan."[/size]
    [size=45]Karim pointed out that "the associated gas constitutes the largest amount of gas in Iraq, in the southern oil fields, where the gas is collected and pumped, and part of it is used in the southern provinces and the middle Euphrates, and sometimes it reaches the central provinces."[/size]
    [size=45]And he indicated, "The quantity of 800 to 900 units is sufficient to build 3500 to 4000 megawatts, and therefore we are forced to buy gas from neighboring countries and search for other sources to supply the national energy system with gas in the near future."[/size]
    [size=45]Karim stated, "The relationship with the Ministry of Oil is organic, because we use gaseous and liquid fuels to operate the stations," explaining that "Iraq did not resort during the past years before this government to establish refineries."[/size]
    [size=45]He stressed, "The National Energy Strategy has imposed on Iraq to establish four to five refineries since 2003," but he spoke of "great cooperation between the ministries of electricity and oil."[/size]
    [size=45]Karim pointed out that "the contract with the French company (Total) will provide us with 500 additional gas stations, and there are licensing rounds awaiting the formation of the government to refer the project in Mansourieh, a field that can equip the national system with 4,000 megawatts."[/size]
    [size=45]He stressed that continuous work in the crutch field could give the system about 1,500 megawatts, and during the coming days we will open a 250 megawatt cane station, which was established a while ago and was subjected to sabotage by terrorist groups, and today it has been rehabilitated and we have passed the trial operation stage and are working to connect it the national system in the coming days.[/size]
    [size=45]Karim continues, "Iraq, at the near level, does not have the ability to supply all stations with local gas, and we need to import gas for a period of no less than five years until other alternatives are found."[/size]
    [size=45]He stated, "The government has a contract that includes the construction of large quantities of solar energy in stages, the first stage producing 7500 megawatts and the second stage 5000 megawatts, through contracts signed with the Chinese (Powergaina) companies, the UAE (Masdar) and Total (French) and Labour. Contracts are being signed with other international companies.[/size]
    [size=45]Karim continues, “The purpose of these contracts is to: Iraq will then be a race to produce electricity through solar energy with 12,500 megawatts, in addition to linking with the Gulf system, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey and Iran, and there will be energy stability and reduced dependence on supplied gas.[/size]
    [size=45]He added, "The system needs approximately 35,000 megawatts to provide citizens with 24 hours of electricity, and today we barely reach 24,000 megawatts in the event of fuel provision, and now we have problems in this aspect."[/size]
    [size=45]Karim believes that "the reliance on the supplied gas will be until the completion of the Mansourieh and Okaz fields to collect associated gas in the southern region."[/size]
    [size=45]He continued, that the current distribution network is dilapidated and old and needs large sums of money to develop it, and work continues during the past two years to establish a large number of stations and transmission lines, but this is not enough.[/size]
    [size=45]He pointed out, "The lack of approval of the budget caused us great damage, because the previous investment budget of the Ministry of Electricity did not include anything."[/size]
    [size=45]Karim added, "The Emergency Support Law for Food Security and Development included sums for the Ministry of Electricity, but all of them were allocated to supply gas from Iran, either to pay the previous debts of $1.6 billion, or to purchase new quantities to equip the stations during the current year."[/size]
    [size=45]It is noteworthy that Iraq has been suffering from the electricity crisis for years, and every summer most of the provinces witness large demonstrations due to the decline in processing hours.[/size]
