STAVANGER, Norway Aug 26 The recent flare up of
violence in Iraq is past its worst and oil companies are mostly
operating normal with developments and exports flowing as
planned, Sara Akbar, Chief Executive of Kuwait Energy, an
investor in the country, said on Tuesday.
"I think we've been through the worst and things will
stabilize from here," Akbar told Reuters. "Most of the
developments in Iraq are on plan, especially in the south, where
most of the international oil companies are still working, with
field developments and exports going normal."
Akbar said Kuwait Energy's projects in the country were
mostly unaffected and she would be keen to invest more in Iraq
if her firm was able to get into projects.
