ExxonMobil evacuates 30 engineers from Iraq, Basra Oil Company says

ExxonMobil evacuated about 30 foreign engineers from Basra, Iraq, as a “temporary precautionary measure,” the government-owned Basra Oil Company said Saturday.

The staff members were evacuated to Dubai and there are “no indicators that companies operating the oil fields are facing any security threats,” the Basra Oil Company said.
“ExxonMobil has programs and measures in place to provide security to protect its people, operations and facilities. We are committed to ensuring the safety of our employees and contractors at all of our facilities around the world,” spokesperson Julie L. King said.
