Iraq expects TotalEnergies to start operations in a long-delayed oil, gas, and renewable energy project at $27 billion, in the second half of 2023, Sky News Arabia reported.
Completed in 2021, the project was delayed amid disagreements between Iraqi politicians over the terms of the agreement.
The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Oil for Extraction Affairs, Bassem Khudair, explained that the project is waiting for the finalization of side contracts with the state oil company.
