Iraq has put out fires at four oil wells in the oil-producing region of Qayyara which Iraqi forces recaptured from ISIS last week, Reuters reported the oil ministry as saying on Monday.
“Work is underway to put out flames in the remaining wells or oil spots that Daesh criminal gangs set ablaze before fleeing the city,” Deputy Oil Minister Fayadh al-Nema said in the statement. ISIS is also known as Daesh.
He didn’t say how many fires were still ablaze.
The Qayyara region produces heavy sour crude and has a small refinery to process some of the oil.
