The Iraq Mega Projects Conference and Exhibition, organised by the CWC group and supported by the Iraqi government, will run till October 3 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre under the patronage of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Maktoum Bin Juma Al Maktoum.
Solutions and best practice case studies will also be shared by representatives across the industry value chain to ensure that operators work with greater efficiency and meet contractual obligations, as Iraq plans to increase oil production by 30 per cent in the next 18 months in a bid to achieve 157 per cent output of the current rates by 2020, said a statement.
