Rumaila Operating Organization (ROO) is an international petroleum company based in Iraq.


Rumaila Operating Organization was founded by BP, CNPC and South Oil Company (SOC) to manage the 20-year rehabilitation and expansion of Rumaila oil field in southern Iraq.[1] The company planned to hire mainly local employees to oversee the operations, with a smaller number of technical experts and managers from BP and CNPC.[2] The operations of the company were scheduled to begin in July 2010.[3]

BP (38% ownership, headquartered in UK) and CNPC (37%, China) had earlier signed a contract with SOC (25%, Iraq) in 2009 to develop and increase production at Rumaila field, Iraq's largest.[4]
