Iraqi oil minister Hussain al-Shahristani has said the estimated cost of building four new refineries in the country to add some 740,000 barrels per day of refining capacity is more than $20bn, Reuters has reported.

Iraq plans to boost its refining capacity to 1.5 million bpd in the next five years by building the four new refineries and overhauling existing ones.
