Our operations in Iraq

In January 2010, ExxonMobil Iraq Limited (EMIL), an affiliate of Exxon Mobil Corporation, signed an agreement with the South Oil Company of the Iraq Ministry of Oil to rehabilitate and redevelop the West Qurna I field in southern Iraq. The agreement was signed in Baghdad by representatives of the Ministry of Oil and members of the West Qurna I contractor consortium, which includes ExxonMobil as the Lead Contractor with 60 percent interest, the Oil Exploration Company of Iraq with 25 percent interest and Shell West Qurna B.V., a Royal Dutch Shell affiliate with 15 percent interest.

ExxonMobil Iraq Limited as Lead Contractor will work to rehabilitate and redevelop the West Qurna I field. ExxonMobil leads the industry in development and production technologies and capabilities, and will apply its worldwide expertise to ensure the success of this project.

In Iraq, as in all the places we work, ExxonMobil is dedicated to providing for the safety of our operations for our employees, contractors and communities where we operate. We recognize that our employees are our most valuable asset, and invest in their safety, health, training and development.
