  • Iraq’s Kurdish Authorities Working to Resume Khor Mor Gas Supply After Deadly Attack
The Iraqi Kurdish ministries of electricity and natural resources announced efforts to restore operations at the Khor Mor gas field in Kurdistan following a drone attack that killed four Yemeni workers and injured two others. The attack, which has not been claimed by any group, halted gas supplies to power plants, reducing power generation by approximately 2,500 MW. Iraqi President Abdul Latif Rashid and Kurdish Prime Minister Masrour Barzani condemned the attack, emphasizing the need for immediate security measures and accountability. The incident highlights ongoing security challenges in the region and disrupts efforts to develop the energy sector, critical for both Kurdistan and Iraq. Pearl Petroleum, a consortium including major UAE companies Dana Gas and Crescent Petroleum, operates the Khor Mor gas field. This attack underscores the vulnerabilities of Iraq's energy infrastructure amidst broader regional tensions and the longstanding Kurdish aspirations for autonomy fueled by natural resources since the 1990s civil war.
