Report summary

The Zagros Foldbelt provides investors with a mix of attractive exploration opportunities within Kurdish administered territory and large and giant discovered resource opportunities (DROs) within Federal Iraq jurisdiction. Several large discoveries in the last decade have attracted large players to the basin including ExxonMobil Total and Chevron. Out to 2035 exploration in Kurdistan is expected to create substantial value and offer attractive returns. The advance of the Islamic State militant group has increased security concerns in the province and could have a negative impact on future exploration levels.
