Mohammed Yassin Hassan al-Obaidi, the General Manager of the Midland Oil Company, said, “the concession of the Korean company to the Ukrainian company to execute and invest in the Akkas field project, represents a significant step towards gas investment, especially in the western region due to its large gas reserves.”

The field was abandoned by South Korea’s state-owned Korea Gas Corporation (Kogas) after it was captured by ISIS militias during the war eight years ago.
