Exclusive: The Official Draft of the Oil and Gas Law of The Iraq Republic, 15 Jan 2007 (Update 1)
Updated - Thanks to the efforts of Raed Jarrar the text of the laws is now available in English (see link below).
Al-Ghad is publishing the full text of the draft Law of Oil & Gas which has been kept away from Iraqi and international public opinion. This will make possible an objective evaluation of this major project and its possible far reaching consequences for the Iraqi people and the world oil industry. We have already published an extensive analysis of the previous draft, by a prominent oil expert, and we are in the process of publishing an update by the same writer, we see no need to introduce this important document.

Full text of the Draft Law (English) With thanks to Raed.
