Shafaq News/ Member of the Oil and Gas Committee, Ali Abdul Sattar Al-Marshoud, confirmed that the oil and gas law has not reached the committee yet due to controversial points being resolved between Baghdad and Erbil, while its approval is contingent on resolving the controversial points.
Al-Marshoud told Shafaq News Agency: “Points of disagreement between the regional government and the federal government delayed the referral of the law to the Oil and Gas Committee,” noting that “the central government refuses to make a change to the paragraphs that the regional government is required to amend, which is the spirit of the law.”
He pointed out "the continuation of discussions between the Ministry of Oil and the committee formed by the Prime Minister and between the regional government and the political forces to end and resolve the controversial issues."
Al-Marshoud conditioned the approval of the oil and gas law on resolving the controversial points according to the meetings that he considered good and positive, stressing that the law will be approved during the current session after resolving the controversial issues.
