Report summaryKirkuk is located 230 kilometres north of Baghdad, and is operated by the North Oil Company - a subsidiary of the Ministry of Oil. The field was discovered in the early 1930s and brought onstream in 1934 - making it one of the longest producing fields in Iraq. The field peaked at just over 1 million b/d in the 1970s as exports via the Iraq-Turkey pipeline started. It has been in long-term decline since around 2000. BP has signed up to carry out a geological study to look at slowing the decline.
