  • Iraq in advanced talks with IOCs over boosting oil capacity to 8 mil b/d by 2027
Iraq, OPEC's second-biggest producer, is in advanced talks with international oil companies over boosting the country's production capacity to 8 million b/d by end of 2027. Several oil companies operate the country's biggest oil field in the south, including BP's Rumaila, Lukoil's West Qurna 2 and Eni's Zubair. But ExxonMobil has filed an arbitration case against state-owned Basra Oil Co. over its stalled attempt to sell its stake in the giant West Qurna 1 oil field.
