Oil Minister Jabbar al-Luiebi has replaced the director general of the Dhi Qar Oil Company (DQOC), a new state-run oil company that otherwise appears primed for realizing growth. Ali Warid Hamoud, formerly the most senior oil fields official at the Missan Oil Company (MOC), is replacing Ali Khudair al-Abodi as director general of DQOC, according to several political and oil officials in Dhi Qar. Abodi had been appointed in April.
