key message
Key Message
  • Future IEITI reports, compared with 2009 and 2010 reports, are expected to be more thorough, comprehensive and challenging. This is due to:
  • The Revised EITI Standard reflecting increasing importance of and pressure for real, effective, comprehensive and participatory transparency measures.
  • The complexity and diversity of the fiscal and financial frameworks of the contracting modalities in the Iraqi extractive industry and the lessons learned so far.
  • Thus it is imperative to have functional IEITI structure and reporting process.

International efforts for effective Transparency
  • Section 1504 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act of 2010 already requires country-by-country reporting of paymentsto governments for all companies operating in the oil, gas, and mining sectors that report to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
  • Section 111 of the Cut Unjustified Tax Loopholes Act, introduced by U.S. Senators Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) in February 2013 would require all multinational companies to disclose their employees, revenues, and tax payments on a country-by-country basis.
  • The European Unionis debating a law similar to that of the US.
  • Many CSOcalled EITI for tougher disclosure rules and standards. They urged the UK Government to seek EITI Board agreement (in its Oslo February 2013 meeting) on five suggestions.

  • MoU (17 March 2013) between MoO& USAIDto improve the effectiveness and transparency of MoO operations.

First: The Mission and Challenges

  • Future IEITI Reports to be more detailed, comprehensive and challenging due to:
  • 1- The Revised EITI standard and requirements;
  • 2- Increasing calls for real and effective transparency measures;
  • 3- The Governing modalities and conditions in the Iraqi extractive industry.
  • Three distinct contracting frameworks: [LTSC ; national efforts] & PSCs (KRG).
  • Many major IOCs and many more Service Companies and Sub-Contractors
  • IOCs with multi-projects involvement
  • Payment: cash and in-kind (LTSC; KRG!!!!)
  • Many IOBs (through SOMO) and KRG (?)
  • Different legal obligations: IOCs vs. IOBs
  • Increasing domestic consumption of petroleum products/refining sector ( domestic revenues in ID, subsidies, accounting prices, etc)
  • Second: Corresponding Requirements
  • National Capacity Development and effective involvement in the IEITI reporting process:
    • IEITI Secretariat:
    • Institutional (structure, setup, etc.):
    • Systemic (rules, procedures, operational modalities, modus-operandi);
    • Human resources (professional and specialised staff: local content!)
  • Awareness & Outreach: Participation & public dialogue ( visibility, accessibility, connectivity, credibility and continuity)
  • MSG (Gov+IOCs+CSO)
  • “Reconciler-Auditor” & “Validator”
third suggestions
Third: Suggestions
  • Proper understanding of the LTSC contracts especially the provision pertaining to fiscal and financial implications. The same applies for PSCs of KRG.
  • Flows of Petroleum “ Oil & Gas” Resources and Revenues (Domestic & Export) require: comprehensive “material balances” and “Integrated National Metering System”.
  • Integrity of SOMO’s operations. Provide monthly data on quantity, quality (crude valuation), price, date of shipment, market destination, and any other vital information for each IOB
  • Meaningful coverage of “Other” Extractive activities of MIM.
  • IEITI should have well structured “Website/ Database” covering all information required for its annual reports, and accessible to the interested public.
  • Consider IEITI annual report as “on-going process” that begins on day one after releasing the previous Report and with full involvement of IEITI staff;
  • IEITI annual report “Timeline” should be carefully planned to allow enough space for proper review, debate and revision;
  • Elaborated Terms of Reference for IEITI report: methodology, terminology, contents, structure, coherence, “materiality threshold”, references, team composition etc.;
  • Independent Expert Review of the “Reconciler” report before adoption by IEITI –MSG.
  • Encourage the “Academia and Research entities” involvement in IEITI activities.
  • IEITI report is a “Sovereign Obligation” to be prepared in accordance with EITI Standard, and it is subject to international scrutiny!. De-politicise IEITI Reports
  • Effective use of international cooperation opportunities (EU, USAID, …) for IEITI capacity development.
