Obelisk Oil Expert: The Iraqi State, Since Its Establishment, Has Not Been Interested In Producing Gas As Is Oil

Baghdad / Al-Obelah: The oil expert, Hamza Al-Jawahiri, explained on Wednesday May 25, 2021 that the previous regime did not give importance to gas as is its position on the importance of oil for the Iraqi economy, so the focus was on exploring and developing oil fields only.

Al-Jawahiri said in a statement to The obelisk, that this matter did not represent the state’s strategy for the previous regime, but rather represented the state’s strategy from its inception until the fall of the previous regime in 2003.


He indicated that what was discovered of gas reservoirs during that period was among the operations of Oil exploration, so these discoveries were neglected due to the presence of large quantities of associated gas, which was burned due to the lack of capacities to process this type of gas, which most of them contain high levels of hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide and also varying proportions of water as the hydrogen sulfide itself is a cause of corrosion The equipment it passes through, as well as its high toxicity, which causes death in many lives N.

He added that the presence of water with sulfur dioxide as well as carbon dioxide is also a strong cause of equipment corrosion, because when these gases dissolve, carbonic sulfur acids H2SO3 and H2CO3 are formed, both of which are strong acids and have a significant impact on equipment corrosion, as well as after Markets in Europe and elsewhere on Iraq, as well as the high costs of developing gas fields.

He pointed out that for these reasons, gas with high impurities, i.e. acid, was neglected, and the focus was on sweet gas, which is produced from the fields of Rumaila, Zubair and Nahr Omar, as the quantities of sweet gas produced from these fields were sufficient to meet Iraq’s need for gas to produce electric power.

He continued: Iraq was at that time producing only 5 kWh until the fall of the previous regime, as what remained of those stations did not produce more than 2.7 kW, leaving the rest to burn because it was not needed and the relatively high costs of treating it, and Iraq did not need it.خبير-نفطي-لـ-المسلة-الدولة-العراقية-منذ-تأسيسها-لم-تهتم-بانتاج-الغاز-مثلما-النفط

Iraqi Oil – And A Gulf Policy To Exploit The Stances (Stealing The Future Of Iraq) And Gulf Aid


Pratha News Agency121 2021-05-27   Sadiq Al-Basrawi   Since the nationalization of Iraqi oil at the beginning of the seventies of the last century, Saudi Arabia and the UAE have excluded a smart oil policy that relies on implicating and pushing for instability in Iraq through play and incitement for the purpose of taking Iraq’s oil share through the policies condemned by it and within a timeline.

Nothing explains why Saudi Arabia, which is thirty million people, exports twice as much as Iraq.

The difference between the Iraqi income is 50 billion dollars in favor of Saudi Arabia for the year 2019 only .. Any simple calculation that shows how the injustice of Saudi Arabia and the UAE, taking into account the official population of the UAE, for the population of citizens (according to the 2010 estimate): 947,997. It earns 66 billion dollars, while Iraq has close to 40 million citizens, 83 billion.

What futile injustice and destruction of millions.

Crude Oil Exports by Country


Below are the 15 countries that exported the highest dollar value worth of crude oil during 2019.

1. Saudi Arabia: US $ 133.6 billion (13.3% of exported crude oil)

2. Russia: $ 121.4 billion (12.1%)

3. Iraq: $ 83.3 billion (8.3%)

4. Canada: $ 68.1 billion (6.8%)

5. United Arab Emirates: $ 66.1 billion (6.6%)

6.United States: $ 65.3 billion (6.5%)

7. Kuwait: $ 42 billion (4.2%)

8. Nigeria: $ 41 billion (4.1%)

1- Exploiting the decision to nationalize Iraqi oil in oil-importing countries and aggravate the global oil situation and intimidate these countries from nationalizing oil, thus taking a larger share of the oil market by building their oil installations and enhancing export capacity and at the same time enhancing instability in Iraq and Inciting the international community to enhance their export capacity in the global oil market. And make huge money at the expense of Iraq.

2- The eighties of the last century, after establishing their export capacity and guaranteeing the market, Saudi Arabia and the UAE began to exploit the Iraq and Iran wars if they did not pay and incite it for the purpose of taking the Iraqi and Iranian oil markets this time, as Iran fell under siege. Increase their oil share in exports and the market, thus increasing their financial income, which explains the great financial extravagance in the eighties of the last century.

Thus, Saudi Arabia and the UAE have an income from their legal oil quota and an oil quota from Iraq and Iran, and this is the share from which they spend to destroy these countries and the region and build their economy. It is an intelligent politician and has a positive outcome for them and is destructive for Iraq.

3- The 1990s, Saudi Arabia and the UAE continued the same oil policy, but more rigorous and experienced, by exploiting the Iraqi and Iranian position, where Iraq left the war and requested an increase in its oil share, and Iran and its submission to sanctions. The financial returns helped these two countries to buy receivables around the world, thus striking Iraq easily in all forums.

With the entry of Iraq into Kuwait, it gave them a greater opportunity to take more of Iraq’s share while it was under sanctions and to strengthen Iran’s sanctions. Here, Saudi Arabia and the UAE benefit greatly in trillions of dollars, not billions. Of course, the weak and idiotic Iraqi position and the failure to properly understand what is going on gave Saudi Arabia and the UAE their ability to steal Iraq.

4- After learning and understanding the great benefit of this cruel and destructive oil policy, Saudi Arabia and the UAE began to strengthen this policy, especially with other countries, and to exploit global policies. With the year 2000 and the events accompanying it, Saudi Arabia cleverly managed this file and exploited all the events to preserve its gains. And it continued with the same policy, and even after the fall of Saddam, Saudi Arabia and the UAE continued to support the instability of Iraq by sending Saudis dying in Iraq, as well as exploiting the internal Iraqi dispute for the purpose of preserving its interests. The Iranian file was easier, as this country succumbed to harsh sanctions. And with this, Saudi Arabia and the Emirates have preserved their oil shares and financial supremacy. This policy lasted until 2010

5- With the year 2011 and the American exit from Iraq and the Arab Spring, Saudi Arabia and the UAE returned to support instability in Iraq, directly and effectively, and other countries this time, especially oil, such as Libya, because this strengthens its control over financial and production superiority.

And with the emergence of ISIS in Syria and Iraq, and with direct Saudi-Emirati support, the main purpose of it is to destroy Iraq and return its export oil share to less than 2 million. This did not succeed, but events returned the Iraqi oil industries by about 20 years, and it is a victory for them.

But the Libyan collapse gave an additional share to Saudi Arabia and the UAE, which explains their intervention in Libya, and with Trump’s presence, Iran remained under siege, and Iraq is now implementing what ISIS could not implement through the hierarchy of power.

The disruptive and atrocious role in the Iraqi oil sector is an important pillar of the Saudi-Emirati political pillars, so do the Iraqis concerned understand with all their religious, political and social details will not fix Iraq, not if Iraq takes its fair oil share and opens the door to development before it is too late and this applies to gas Also.

If Iran returns to the oil market through the nuclear agreement, Saudi Arabia and the UAE will return in a more aggressive way to the policy of instability in Iraq or the employment of some Iraqi politicians for the purpose of implementing its goals.

With this, those who say Saudi Arabia or the UAE support Lebanon or any other country know that this aid comes directly from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Venezuela and other countries through the above practices.
