Conclusion

In June, they signed a contract with the Chinese company and British petroleum for development deal in the Rumaila field. I believe that Iraq allowing foreign companies into its country to drill for oil will have a great impact on the global economy. First, it will helps with the Iraqi's national budget and allow for revenue to help rebuild the nation. Also, it will brings jobs to both the local Iraqis and the country of whatever buys the contract. Iraq's oil production charges are among the cheapest in the world. This will allow for the lower crude oil prices which will leads to lower gas prices. In conclusion, I believe that Iraq decision to allow foreign oil companies to drill is not only good for Iraq but will also benefit the global economy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraq http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/06/world/middleeast/06iraqoil.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1 ...read more.
