This report presents a review of a bilateral cooperation in the petroleum sector between Norway and Iraq. The cooperation was initiated in 2004 and has been organized in two phases; this review is limited to current programme phase II.

This phase is based on a programme agreement concluded between Norad and the Iraqi Ministry of Oil (MoO) in 2011. Subsequently, MoO and the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy (MPE) entered into a three-year institutional Cooperation Contract in 2013, which stipulates a review of phase II before its end.

The purpose of the review is threefold:

  • documentation and assessment of achievements made so far in programme phase II;
  • identification of areas in the Iraqi sector in need and suitable for continued support by OfD under the remaining part of programme phase II and a potential new phase;
  • a thorough risk assessment including external and internal risk factors, and identification of efficient mitigating measures for programme phase II.
