Maysan (IraqiNews.com) Member of the Energy Committee in Maysan Provincial Council, Ammar Nasrallah, called the Ministry of Oil to grant the province right to take part in running the oil sector according to the Iraqi Constitution.

Nasrallah told IraqiNews.com that “We call to apply the constitutional article No 112 which grants the oil producing provinces the right to participate in administrating the oil sector and form the strategic policies,” stressing that the “Ministry of Oil violated this article through concluding contracts with oil companies without informing the provinces.”

“We have reservations concerning those contracts as being unconstitutional, among them a contract concluded with Petro China Company for 20 years,” he added.
