agreement was reached with Iranian Elam province to implement the houses' liquid gas project.
She pointed that the first phase of the project shall be near al-Ahdab oilfield, 30 km west of Kut city, because there great quantities of gas are uselessly burnt.
"Another Italian company expressed desire to implement the project, thus the province will study the two offers", al-Ikaili added.
Wassit province is planning a project to supply the houses with gas pipelines.
Al-Ahdab oilfield produces 140.000 b/d, in addition to greater quantities of liquid gas.
