A source close to the ministry of oil previously announced on October 30th 2013 that some international oil companies submitting offers to the project asked to postpone the final deadline to give them more time to further study the project’s contract.

The same source said that the 13 companies competing for the project were all international with no local or Arabic companies, asked to give them more chance to study the project’s contracts and documents to provide a final decision about their participation.

It worth mentioning that the Nasiriya Integrated Project Licensing round was postponed twice before this new date.

Japan's Nippon Oil Corporation withdrawn from the Nasiriya oil field development contract which it won in 2009 because negotiations with the Oil Ministry reached a dead end.
