Report summaryThe Hamrin oil field lies east of the town of Baiji and the River Tigris in northern Iraq, about 200 kilometres north of Baghdad. It is a giant discovery with provisional estimated reserves of 1.88 billion barrels of oil. The field was brought onstream by North Oil Company in early 2014, but was under the control of Islamic State militants from June 2014, when the group occupied large swathes of northern federal Iraq. The neighbouring Ajil field was retaken by Iraqi forces, but it is unclear who has control of Hamrin as of December 2015.
