Q&A: Finance Minister Hoshyar ZebariQ&A: Finance Minister Hoshyar Zebari Then-Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, now Finance Minister, meets with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Baghdad on June 23, 2014. (THAIER AL-SUDANI/Reuters) By Daniel W. Smith of Iraq Oil Report Published Thursday, December 4th, 2014 ERBIL - As a Kurd sitting at the helm of the all-important Finance Ministry in Baghdad, Hoshyar Zebari straddles the political divide between Baghdad and Erbil - and has a unique view into the nascent efforts to bridge that gap. On Tuesday, the Iraqi Cabinet unanimously approved a plan that could see Kurdistan facilitate some 550,000 barrels per day (bpd) of federal oil exports, in exchange for a 17 percent share of the federal budget. The deal has sparked rare talk of resolving oil policy disputes that have plagued Iraq for a decade. It also raises a host of questions. The Dec. 2 agreement does not definitively address the most fundamental issues of control - over oil contracting, field management, and exports - that could determine the balance of power between the central and regional governments in the future. Those issues will be debated in the Cabinet, and then the Parliament, when Iraqi leaders try to pass a 2015 budget law and a hydrocarbons law. Iraq’s oil disputes have derailed such attempts before. Zebari spoke with Iraq Oil Report about the importance of the Dec. 2 deal, the ways it has already changed the tenor of debate in Bagdad and Erbil, and the fraught politics ahead. Daniel W. Smith: How would you characterize the negotiations and their outcome? Hoshyar Zebari: The negotiations really showed a great deal of commitment by the leadership of both sides to crack this nut. It will open up ways to normalize relations between the KRG and the federal government in other aspects as well: of security cooperation, of business, of trade. DWS: What were the sticking points? HZ: The major sticking point was the amount of oil production from the KRG. Originally, we had proposed 150,000 bpd, but because of the strains on the budget, Baghdad wanted to increase that amount as far as 250,000 bpd. Also, there are outstanding payments for public services, salaries, and Peshmerga salaries that have not been paid for a long time. There was a clear commitment by the government in Baghdad to make installment payments on the part of this that was owed to the Peshmerga. DWS: And to be clear, from what you just mentioned, these installments were promised for just the Peshmerga portion, or any other portion as well? HZ: The Peshmerga portion. DWS: And this is not being deducted from the 17 percent? This will be paid by the Defense Ministry in Baghdad. The KRG will receive the entire 17 percent, and sovereign expenses will not be deducted from this. DWS: Were there any major disagreements on this issue? HZ: No, it wasn’t a difficult issue, and I don’t think it will be one. It’s all a done deal. We are now already preparing the 2015 budget, and we have included the 17 percent KRG share. DWS: Passing previous Iraqi budgets hasn’t usually been an easy thing to do, and parties have commonly tried to block or amend parts of them. How do you see this playing out in the Finance Committee in Baghdad, and then right before it gets voted on? HZ: This time, there was a unanimous agreement between all the political parties that are represented in the government. This is what was needed before a budget passes. There wasn’t a single objection, really. DWS: Was it a verbal agreement, or an actual written and signed agreement? HZ: It is a written agreement, and was announced as a written agreement. DWS: Will it be released to the public, so Iraq’s citizens can see what specifically was agreed upon? HZ: No, but the main points were announced publicly in press conferences. DWS: When does the deal begin to be implemented, and what needs to happen first? It is being implemented immediately, actually. It was endorsed by the Iraqi cabinet, and it’s a done deal that goes into effect immediately. DWS: Does Bai Hassan and Avana dome remain under KRG control, and thus part of KRG exports, or Kirkuk? HZ: I’m really not very familiar with the details of all the oil fields. The amount of 300,000 barrels should come from Kikruk – this is the deal. DWS: The deal says 250,000 bpd from KRG. But KRG plans to export more than 250,000 bpd this coming year, so who sells that extra oil, SOMO or KRG? HZ: Additional oil produced will go for local consumption, within the region. That is the agreed target. DWS: Are you saying that, according to the agreement, anything produced over 250,000 bpd will not be sold, and used exclusively for local consumption? HZ: This deal is acceptable to both sides, and this point is not a problem for either one. The aim here really was to bring Kurdish oil into the national pot, to get it flowing. Because of the deficit, the balancing of the oil costs, the other problems we have with the expenditures that all wasn’t working. All the experts were advising us, "The only way you have is to increase oil production, and the only available oil is in the north." DWS: What happens to the KRG exported oil currently out at sea? HZ: I think they were silent on that. It is not the most important issue. DWS: What happens to the revenues KRG already made from sales? HZ: The same. DWS: From what you’re saying, I’m getting the impression that neither of the sides are making too many demands about things that have already happened, such budget payments not made and oil already sold or shipped. HZ: Definitely. We are not talking about all the past problems. It is a new beginning. Related Stories
