Welcome to the Iraq Oil Almanac - the first open source reference for the Iraqi oil industry.

Learn about the nationalisation of Iraq's oil industry in the 1970s and relations with critical countries in the region such as Kuwait; or find an overview of Iraq's revenue sharing procedures and national entities such as the Petroleum Contracts and Licensing Directorate.

This is a living document that will continue to expand as articles are added by contributors in Iraq and elsewhere. If you want to make a guide to the extractive industry in your country, see our three-question, two-minute questionnaire or contact us at wikiguides(at)
