Being one of the world’s biggest oil producer with an outdated oil refining system, oil pollution has always been a major problem in Iraq. Furthermore, with the recent regional conflicts oil facilities have turned in to a major environmental risk. Refineries, tanks, pipelines, and oil fields have been subjected to sabotage, thefts and bombings all resulting in oil spills and pollution.
