V: also forgot to add, that the second traunch was just released on Sunday for the remaining balance from Bagdad to KRG.  This was not expected to well into the new year, if at all.  This has not recieved much coverage here, but is hugh news non the less.  If they can establish a regular pattern in payments, and fall into a routine of sorts, this will make hugh inroads in coming together to get the o&g law passed.  Things are moving forward(not as fast as we would like).  Facing saving measures are being put in place.  Another cent into the equation.  GL all.
