Iraq has dismissed Falah al-Amri as head of oil marketer SOMO but he will remain the country’s OPEC governor, the Iraqi oil ministry said. A spokesman said Amri would also remain a consultant for marketing and strategies at the oil ministry while Alaa al-Yasiri would become the acting head of SOMO.

A senior oil ministry official said the decision to replace Amri is part of a wider plan to appoint new managers at key positions in the ministry. Iraqi Oil Minister Jabar al-Luaibi issued an order to appoint Ihsan Abul Jabbar as the new chief of the state-run South Oil Company (SOC).

“Minister Luaibi has new plans for managing the oil ministry. New plans require new managers and new blood. More decisions will be issued by minister Luaibi soon as part of a reshuffle process to restructure the oil ministry,” said the oil official.
