Economy News - Baghdad



The House of Representatives questioned the contracts of the fifth licensing round approved by the Council of Ministers in Diyala governorate related to the development of oil and gas fields. The council also considered it an explicit legal violation of the tasks and powers of the caretaker government.

In turn, the Parliamentary Oil and Energy Committee accused the current minister and an adviser to the resigned prime minister of passing this deal in exchange for bribes, pointing out that these contracts include the development of joint oil and gas fields between Iraq and the Iranian and Kuwaiti sides.

The common fields of Iraq are divided with Kuwait and Iran between exploited fields and others awaiting exploitation, as specialists estimate unexploited reserves of them at more than one hundred billion barrels of crude oil.

The Ministry of Oil had revealed last year that Iraq and Kuwait signed the first contract of its kind with a British investment company to prepare studies for the exploitation of the joint border oil fields between the two countries, namely the field (Dome of Safwan - Abdali) and the field (South Rumaila, Ratka - Ratqa field).

Member of the Oil and Energy Committee in the House of Representatives Amjad Al-Aqabi said in a statement reported by "Al-Mada" newspaper and seen by "Al-Iqtisad News", "The conclusion of the fifth licensing round related to the development of joint oil and gas fields with the Iranian and Kuwaiti sides by the caretaker government comes to Iraq's urgent need for gas The normal way to supply his power stations. "

And the Oil and Energy Committee in the House of Representatives accused in the middle of this month, the Oil Ministry of deliberately lagging in investing more than (23) joint oil fields with Kuwait and Iran, vowing to conduct comprehensive investigations with all officials in the oil sector through its subcommittees to hold the neglected and refer them to the judiciary.

Al-Oqabi shows that "the fifth licensing round will include the development of oil and gas fields in Diyala to raise Iraq’s production of natural gas to meet the need for electrical stations from natural gas and stop importing gas from Iran," noting that "the constitution did not allow the daily caretaker government to conclude such contracts" .

And at the beginning of last December, the government of Adel Abdul Mahdi turned to conducting daily business after submitting its resignation to the House of Representatives, which was approved by a majority of its members due to the protests that demanded her dismissal and the call for parliamentary elections.

After the parliament’s approval of the abdication of the Abdul-Mahdi government, social networking sites circulated a letter issued by the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers that includes circular addressed to the Federal Supreme Court and the Supreme Judicial Council and ministries and provinces not related to a region that includes the powers of the caretaker government

The circular included indicating that one of the tasks and authority of the resigned government is to manage routine or urgent and urgent issues that the new government cannot wait to address, "stressing that the implementation of the government program will be stopped in matters that have not started.

The generalization also obligated the caretaker government at the time to stop issuing any decision that would affect the new government's ability to carry out its duties in principle, and to stop taking any foreign policy decisions. 

The Legal Committee of the House of Representatives commented on the approval of the Council of Ministers to conclude contracts for the fifth licensing round related to the development of border fields, patch areas and gas fields in Diyala Governorate, "as an explicit legal violation" of the functions and powers of the daily caretaker government and "specified in the daily affairs."

Member of the Parliamentary Committee, MP Hussein Al-Oqabi said in a statement to (Al-Mada) that "the daily caretaker government committed legal violations outside its powers by concluding contracts for the fifth licensing round," explaining that "the principle of caretaking is limited to keeping pace with daily matters related to health, public security and others."

The Cabinet approved the recommendation of the Ministerial Energy Council (Paragraph 4 No. 8 of 2020) to approve the contracts for the fifth licensing round related to the development of border fields, patch areas and gas fields in Diyala Governorate, which would produce more than 750 million standard cubic feet of gas within 36 months. 

And he points out that "the legal violations committed by the government can be appealed before the Federal Court by any citizen or political and non-political, given that the conclusion of these contracts is not one of the powers determined by the constitution."

Al-Aqabi adds that "if the new government is formed, it can also cancel these illegal contracts by filing a lawsuit against the caretaker government," ruling out the accountability of the caretaker government within the parliament because it has a representative majority.

The MP follows the National Approach, "There are a lot of legal violations committed by the caretaker government, including the conclusion of an economic agreement with Jordan several days ago without any accountability by the regulatory or judicial authorities."

The Ministry of Oil launched four licensing rounds with major international oil companies, the first of which included the investment of giant oil fields, the second for oil and gas fields, the third for gas fields, and the fourth for exploration areas.

On the other hand, another deputy in the Parliamentary Oil and Energy Committee reveals the tendency of the majority of ministers to conclude various and different contracts after the government turned to conducting daily business to obtain "kitchens", pointing out that these ministers are in a hurry to conclude some deals and contracts under these circumstances.

The deputy, who preferred not to be named to (Al-Mada), explains that one of the members of the Ministerial Energy Committee (he is a current minister) managed to pass the fifth round contracts deal with the assistance of one of the economic advisers to the resigned prime minister, saying that this minister and the government consultant are accused of passing government contracts that have suspicions of corruption big.
