Iraq invites oil investment but the majors stay away

Iraq is expected to invite bids to develop dozens of its oil fields this week, but the world’s oil majors are still shunning the country. It will unveil its first licensing round since the war ended over five years ago.

The Iraqi oil ministry wants the big oil companies to contribute major investment, personnel and expertise to boost production. But the majors are refusing because the ministry is not offering production-sharing agreements that allow them to add Iraqi oil to their reserves and make more profit the more oil they pump.
