The rapid pace of development in the Kurdistan Region’s natural resources sector has understandably attracted the interest of companies specialising in the organisation of oil and gas conferences. 

The KRG Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) welcomes such interest and is open to approaches from all reputable conference organisers to stage events in the Kurdistan Region. 

It has come to our attention, however, that a small number of conference companies have been falsely claiming official MNR support for, and participation in, events planned for this year in Erbil. 

The MNR would like to clarify the following: 

- Official MNR support has been given to just two oil and gas conferences this year in Erbil. 
- One is to be organised on September 15 by the Turkish company STEAM. 
- The other will take place November 13-15 and will be organised by CWC Group from the United Kingdom. 
- At this stage, MNR is unlikely to give official support to any other conference events to be held in Kurdistan in 2011. 
- Conference companies interested in MNR involvement with events planned for 2012 should contact MNR in writing in the first instance and obtain official approval.


As per KRG's agreement with the Iraqi government and under the 2015 Budget Law
