Iraq Plans Oil Refinery at Faw

Iraq plans to build an oil refinery at the Faw Port on the Persian Gulf with the cooperation of two Chinese companies and is seeking investors to build three more, the oil ministry said on its website on Monday. The refinery in Faw will have a 300,000 barrel-per-day capacity and include a petrochemical plant, it said, Reuters reported. Two other refineries, each with a 150,000-bpd capacity, are planned in Nasiriya, southern Iraq, and in the western Anbar Province. A third, with a 100,000-bpd capacity, is planned in Qayara, near Mosul, the northern Iraqi city, which was taken back from the self-styled Islamic State terrorists last year. Iraq is OPEC’s second-largest oil producer, after Saudi Arabia. Its refining capacity was curtailed when IS overran its largest oil processing plant in Baiji, north of Baghdad, in 2014. Iraqi forces recaptured Baiji in 2015, but the place sustained heavy damage in the fighting. The country now relies on the Doura refinery, in Baghdad, and Shuaiba plant, in the south.
