Default Basra

I am currently in negotiations with oil operator for rotational position in Basra. Anyone have any thoughts as to current security situation there ?

I don't have any local insight, but it's been in the news a fair bit recently: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...next-for-basra

Are you going with BP or petrochina. If it is either then i would find other employees on Linked in and ask them

Below is from a BP employee written in 2017

1. It will take three months to obtain your work permit, then require time to obtain security zone access permit, etc.
2. All travel outside the camps is coordinated and managed by security teams. Work effectiveness is often limited by availability of security teams.
3. The Basra airport is small(which is good), but disorganized and slow(which is bad).
4. There is little to distract you from the daily routine, which can become boring, but if you are on 28-28 rotation, it is manageable.
5. My comments based on working at BP. Working at the PetroChina location might be a little different.
