15 Aug 2014
Total, the French oil major, has reduced the number of employees working in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.

A spokesperson for Total spoke out about the decision, confirming that work on the two oil blocks it operates is continuing as scheduled.

In 2013, Total acquired an 80% stake in the Baranan exploration block in the Kurdistan region. They also became operators of the block, and drilling of its first exploration well is expected by the end of this year.
