More than 100 international energy companies and 800 political and diplomatic figures are expected to attend the Kurdistan-Iraq Oil & Gas Conference 2013 in Erbil next month.

The four-day conference opens December 1, 2013, just as the autonomous KRG in northern Iraq begins to export oil directly to Turkey through its newly-extended pipeline.

Asection of the conference will be dedicated to discussions about Kurdistan’s oil contracts, as well as talks over the Iraqi Oil & Gas bill. Deputy Prime Minister of Iraq Roj Nuri Shawes is expected to participate.
