Iraq Update


The board of Petrel Resources (AIM: PET) is pleased to provide an update on the Company's position in Iraq.  In mid 2012, Petrel appointed a new Baghdad/Amman based team of Iraqi citizens to review the standing of and opportunities for Petrel in Iraq.  The first objective was to clarify the position of Petrel with the national authorities in relation to existing and historic projects in which Petrel has or had an interest.  This is done.


The second objective is to work with national and regional authorities in Iraq to identify projects in which Petrel can be involved.  This work is ongoing.


John Teeling, Chairman commented: "This is a new start for Petrel in Iraq.  We are long term believers in the massive potential for the country.  We are working quietly with the national and regional authorities to identify ways forward."



Petrel Resources is a diversified oil and gas exploration and production company, with interests in Ghana, Ireland and Iraq. The company has a signed petroleum agreement in Ghana, holds two licences in offshore Ireland and recently completed an exploration and production joint venture contract in Iraq.
