Erbil - Khabat refinery

PostAuthor: alan131210 » Fri Apr 15, 2011 6:36 pm

On July 18, 2009, the 20,000 barrel per day Erbil Refinery, owned by KAR Oil Refining Ltd., received its first oil from the Khurmala Dome oil field. The oil is transported via a 40 kilometer, 20 inch buried pipeline from the newly constructed Central Process Station at Khurmala Dome oil field to the Erbil Refinery on the western side of Erbil. This is the first major refinery in Kurdistan and the first private sector refinery in Iraq.

The Erbil Refinery has two distillation units each with a capacity of 10,000 barrels per day. It produces kerosene and diesel for the consumer market and naphtha and fuel oil for the industrial market. The refinery will produce approximately 429,300 liters of diesel per day, enough to fill approximately 5,500 vehicles per day. It will produce 588,300 liters of kerosene per day, enough to provide one tank of kerosene for a heater for one night in 120,000 homes. The fuel oil from the plant will be used to provide energy for heavy industry including cement and brick factories.

Erection of the Erbil Refinery started in 2005 under a contract between the Iraqi Ministry of Oil and the Iraqi Ministry of Industry and Minerals. The project should have taken 18 months to complete, but budget difficulties and inefficiencies caused delays. In late-2008 the refinery was only 60 percent complete, and the Kurdistan Regional Government intervened and privatized the refinery. KAR Oil Refining Ltd. was awarded the refinery and given an ambitious target to commission the refinery by July 2009.

A major expansion of the refinery has already begun. By the end of 2009, the capacity of the refinery will be doubled from its current 20,000 barrels a day to 40,000 barrels per day. KAR Oil Refining purchased a newly built, fully engineered and skid mounted refinery complex from Ventech Engineering near Houston, Texas. The equipment is being shipped to Erbil in late July 2009. The expansion consists of a 20,000 barrel per day distillation unit and process units to make high quality, world standard gasoline, diesel, LPG and kerosene. The gasoline unit will be the first of its kind in Iraq providing up to 95 octane gasoline.

KAR Oil Refining has ambitions to increase the refinery further to an operating capacity of 75,000 barrels per day in 2010. Plans are currently being set and an announcement will be forthcoming.

11,496 companies function in Kurdistan

PostAuthor: alan131210 » Fri Apr 15, 2011 6:40 pm

Image

The number of the registered companies in the Kurdistan Region amounts to over 11,000 companies.

Twana Ahmed, the media secretary for the Kurdistan Region’s Council of Ministers applauded the Region for attracting the foreign investors and encouraging the local businessman, describing its policies “successful.”

Ahmed told AKnews according to the latest official figures some 11,496 companies, foreign and local, have put their assets into investment in various fields of the Region.

With the steady influx of the businessmen into Kurdistan, the Region is reinforcing its image as a lucrative zone. The reputation is further reinforced as the Region is presenting itself as a safe zone for trading with the rest of the war-ravaged Iraq.

Many consider the Kurdistan Region’s investment law a “key factor” for drawing the investors. The law is hailed as an investor-friendly regulation.

Iraq to build an automobile plant in the Kurdistan Region

PostAuthor: alan131210 » Fri Apr 15, 2011 6:41 pm

Image

PNA - Mr Anwar Jabali Kurdistan Region's minister of transportation and communication said that a number of tycoons are seriously involved in talks to establish an automobile manufacturing plant in the Kurdistan Region in northern Iraq.
Mr Jabali did not disclose the names of the magnates. However, he stressed the Region has a promising condition for founding the factory and expected it will be installed in a near future.

The Kurdish government cannot afford the expenses of such a plant; therefore, it is only the private sector capitalists who can introduce an auto factory to the Region.

The media reports and observers point to the profitability of the Kurdistan Region for the private sector. Almost 11,500 private companies are currently functioning in various fields in the semi autonomous region which enjoys a relative stability as compared with the rest of Iraq.

Kurdistan is investing billions to be self sufficient by 201

PostAuthor: alan131210 » Fri Apr 15, 2011 6:42 pm

"Times news paper"

in Jan 2009 KRG unveiled its five year strategic development plan for the agricultural sector with the intention of becoming self-sufficient in food production by 2013. this goal demanded a 100% increase in output over the period something which should be achievable given that in 2009 only 1.3 million acres out of a possible 3.8 million were under cultivation.
"we need $10 billion to implement the plan" says KRG Minister of agriculture and water resources, Jameel Sulaiman Haider."we have been concentrating on grain ,fruit and veges during the 1st two years.Regarding grain we have reached 500,000 tons of wheat and our goal for dairy products".

there are however plentiful water suppliers in Kurdistan the Minister notes and 30% of funds will be dedicated to irrigation to ensure shortages do not prove an obstacle to future harvests.

in 2010 the region exceeded its wheat target by 20% but only produced just over half of its 650,000 ton vege needs while fruit and animal production continued to lag. greenhouses of which the Ministry has distributed some 14000 to local farmers looks set to boost output and improve models are scheduled for delivery in 2011. up to 50% of the regions export are expected to be grown under cover in the future.
