Erbil, Kurdistan – Iraq ( - The Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) is pleased to announce that the new online Oilfield Services Company (OSC) registration and AVL listing system, hosted by the MNR Portal, is now open for applications. Having successfully completed an eight-week pilot, the MNR invites OSCs wishing to provide services to Operators in the Kurdistan Region to register with the MNR, and subscribe onto Approved Vendor Lists (AVLs).

The new system will allow OSCs to:

- Apply for registration and listing remotely from anywhere in the world
- Choose to list their services from a comprehensive catalogue of AVLs
- Receive invitations to tender directly from the AVL system
- Ensure participation in all tenders related to your registered services
- Manage their registration profile via an easy to use and secure system

As part of the application process, OSCs are required to submit corporate, financial, quality management, HSE management and local development information, as well as technical information related to the AVLs they are applying to subscribe onto, of which there are over 200. 

The MNR encourages OSCs that were listed on the old system, to begin their applications as soon as possible, as in early 2017 the old AVLs will expire, and only OSCs listed on the new AVLs will be eligible to receive invitations to bid on work from Operators, which they will send via the MNR Portal.

For further information, please contact The MNR also encourages interested companies to attend the CWC Kurdistan-Iraq Oil & Gas Conference in London on 5-7 December, where the MNR registrations team will be available for questions. Please see for more information about the conference.
