  • Description

    Today at 10 o'clock His Majesty King Faisal 11 opened the Daura Lube Plant. It is the first of its kind in Iraq to produce mineral oils of all kinds.

    On this occasion the King was accompanied by his Minister of Economics, who made the chief speech of the day, and other ministers, members of the diplomatic corps, and high-ranking officials.

    A large crowd was present in and around the plant as His Majesty went on a tour of the refinery.

    The Daura Lube project is another link in the chain of projects to be launched by the Government Oil Refineries Administration in the field of petroleum industries. It represents a further advance in the industrialisation programme of Iraq.

    The plant was financed by the Iraqui Government and executed by Iraqui hands with the aid of foreign experts.
