Karbala oil refinery was opened by the Prime Minister in the presence of the Director General of the refinery, who had already been terminated and then returned under a financial corruption deal with the head of one of the political blocs, according to what was stated by a member of the Iraqi Parliament (Alia Nssayif) in a televised interview, which stated that the aforementioned refinery project which its machines has been subjected to worn out due to the delay in completion, which took (110) months instead of the period set for it by (54) months and delay fines were imposed on the implementing parties estimated at (550) million dollars, which were later dropped by another corruption deal in agreement with the implementing party, which is the South Korean company Hyundai, and Mrs. MP added that the cost of dispatching cadres for training to operate the refinery amounted to (600) million dollars, which was useless, as the percentage of daily production did not reach the minimum set for it, although the project is described as one of the largest oil projects in the country.
