Minister of Oil[edit]

Alluaibi was approved as Minister of Oil by Iraq's parliament in August 2016[17] and on 15 August 2016 was sworn in as minister[18] in the cabinet of Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi. Alluaibi replaced former Minister of Oil Adel Abdul Mahdi, who had suspended his cabinet seat in March 2016.[19] Alluaibi is not formally connected to any political party and had been criticizing the inefficiency of the ministry of oil as early as 2009.[20] In December 2017 Aluaibi signed a crude-oil exchange deal with Iran for one year, to export oil from northern Iraqi Kirkuk oilfield.[21] In early 2018 Iraq also signed a deal with a U.S. company to further develop oil and gas fields in the south. The deal was described as an "important step" by Alluaibi.[22]

Aluaibi regularly appears on national and international media, commenting on the developments within Iraq's oil and gas sector.[23][24][25][26][27]
