Basrah Gas Company

Basrah Gas Company is an Iraqi company established by the Iraqi Government to meet an Iraqi challenge.

That challenge is to turn Basrah Province’s abundant endowment of natural gas into a blessing for the current and future generations.

Basrah Province already produces enough gas to create electricity for more than eleven million homes. Much of this is produced with oil but unfortunately most of this gas is wasted. It is currently flared rather than captured.

Basrah Province’s existing natural gas infrastructure is in urgent need of rehabilitation after 30 years of sanctions and conflict. New infrastructure is also required, to further increase production of this valuable fuel for social and economic development.

Through the vision of the Iraqi Government, BGC was created in May 2013 to meet this challenge. BGC is a public/private partnership, unique in Iraq. It is made up of South Gas Company, the majority shareholder, Shell and Mitsubishi.

 

Infrastructure overview

BGC is a midstream natural gas company. Our operations are in the middle of the natural gas value chain.

We play a vital role, but must work together with our partners both upstream and downstream to create value for Iraq and our shareholders.

Shaping The Future of Energy

The oil and natural gas industry has a key role to play in helping Iraq meet the deep and profound challenges that it faces.

That challenge is to turn Basrah Province’s abundant endowment of natural gas into a blessing for the current and future generations.
