BASRA - The Parliament Oil, Gas, and Natural Resources Committee is aiming to pass a long-delayed national oil law before the end of the year.

“The current status [of the law] is that we sent it back to the central government to make a few changes — upon their request — and we are waiting for the law to be sent back with these amendments so we review them in the committee, and start the process of reshaping the law and preparing it for a vote,” said Basra MP Ali Mashkoor, a member of the committee, speaking with Iraq Oil Report at his office in Basra.
