Visitors are government executives, delegates and decision makers, financiers and project consultants, petrochemical and natural gas experts, as well as contractors in construction, repair and maintenance services of the gas and oil infrastructure.
There are currently 45 Erbil oil companies registered in the local company directories and their contribution to the financial growth of Iraqi Kurdistan is crucial. It has been estimated that the Kurdistan region holds vast amounts of oil and natural gas and some of the most well-known international oil and gas companies have signed contracts with the Kurdistan Ministry of Natural Resources. The list of Erbil oil companies includes Genel Energy, Total, Exxon Mobil, Gulf Keystone Petroleum Ltd, Chevron, HESS, and many more.
Revenue from the oil and gas industry keeps increasing and in the last 6 years the profit reached 6 billion dollars, an amount of money that the Kurdistan Regional Government has used to enhance the region's infrastructure and provide its inhabitants with safe, fresh water, electricity all around the clock, and a modern road system. At the same time, new hospitals and new schools and universities have raised the standard of health, real estate, travel, industrial and education in the Kurdistan region.
