Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A +0.8%) aims to start production from a greenfield project in Iraq's Majnoon oil field within the next two to three months, with total output expected to reach 175K bbl/day by the end of the year, CEO Simon Henry says. The ramp up in output has been delayed while Shell resolved operational and legislative issues such as cost recovery and importing equipment.
