Economy News _ Baghdad
Seismic teams of the Ministry of Oil continue to explore five sites in Anbar Governorate to explore the quantities of liquid gas in them, which are estimated at 25 trillion.
Aziz Khalaf Al-Tarmouz, the advisor to the Anbar Governor for Energy Affairs, promised, in an interview with Al-Sabah newspaper, which was followed by Al-Eqtisad News, that “investing the province’s reserves of oil and gas is a major transformation in enhancing the resources of Anbar and the country and eliminating the great waste of this important wealth.”
He added that "the quantities in the whole province, especially in the five regions, are estimated at billions of tons of gas," noting that
"the crutch field alone contains five trillions of liquid gas substance, while the other areas contain the same amount."
He pointed out that "the Ministry of Oil had previously sent its reconnaissance teams to prepare sites and set up caravans for workers."
He added, "In order to connect our province to the network of oil pipelines throughout Iraq, the Ministry of Oil approved a project to extend a pipeline to transport liquid gas from the Abu Ghraib pipeline node towards Ramadi, with a length of 120 km."
