Rosneft is in advanced discussions for all or a part of the ExxonMobil-led giant West Qurna-1 field development project, while another Russian state oil firm is poised to win acreage in the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), multiple sources tell MEES. The moves come amid escalating political tensions and an accompanying deterioration in security which saw over 100 killed in attacks on 23 July alone. Rafiq Latta reports.
