Worley Group to rebuild Iraqi oil industry

An Australian company has won a one billion dollar contract to rebuild the oil infastructure in Iraq:

An Australian company has won a $1 billion contract to help rebuild Iraq's oil industry, with the Federal Government urging greater Australian involvement in postwar Iraq despite continuing terrorist attacks.

Foreign Minister Alexander Downer said the coalition must keep working for peace in Iraq following at least 25 deaths in a weekend car bombing of its Baghdad headquarters.

Worley Group, a Sydney firm that won the Iraq contract in conjunction with two US companies, said yesterday the security of its staff was paramount, but plans were in place to ensure their safety.

But I thought this was a war fought to make Halliburton rich?
