Gazprom Neft Middle East, a subsidiary of Gazprom Neft, has assumed the operatorship of the Sarqala field (Garmian block), located in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI). Operatorship was transferred pursuant to the production sharing contract for this field, signed in 2012. WesternZagros Resources Ltd was previously operator on the project. Work on the field is now being managed by staff of Gazprom Neft Middle East.

First oil at the Garmian block was achieved in 2011, with commercial production commencing in 2015. As at 1 March 2016 total production at the field had reached 2.7 million tonnes.

As well as its production programme, Gazprom Neft is also implementing a range of corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives throughout the KRI, one of which is a specialist scholarship programme for young Kurdish professionals — the Gazprom Neft Middle East Scholarship Programme, offering the most talented school leavers the opportunity to pursue specialist higher education programmes at the Natural Mineral Resources University, St Petersburg, with the opportunity of employment thereafter at the company’s assets throughout the Middle East.
