Iraqi-Kurdistan is on the verge of becoming one of the world’s major oil exporters. Second only to the shale revolution in the United States, the oil and gas explorations there have the potential to change the global (and European) energy landscape. The only shadow hanging over this prospect is the political strife between the Kurdish Regional Government in Arbil and the central Iraqi government in Baghdad. But recently the likelihood of a political agreement has increased markedly, writes Friedbert Pflüger, Director of the European Centre for Energy and Resource Security (EUCERS) at King‘s College London.
