DUBAI, (Reuters) – Iraq’s oil ministry published a list of 35 companies on Monday that it said were qualified to bid in the first licensing round for oil and gas contracts.

Companies that failed to qualify for the first round could still be added to the list for later bidding rounds, the oil ministry said. Some 120 companies submitted documentation for qualification.

Oil majors BP, Chevron, Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch Shell and Total all qualified, according to the list.
