Filter XML Query

I am new to xml queries and I am facing difficulties in parsing some XML data from the following XML data:

<Parameter name="cust_contact_citizenship"><StringValue>Albania</StringValue></Parameter>
<Parameter name="poa_address1" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:nil="true"/>
<Parameter name="poa_address2" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:nil="true"/>
<Parameter name="poa_address3" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:nil="true"/>
<Parameter name="poa_address4" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:nil="true"/>
<Parameter name="branch_minit" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:nil="true"/>
<Parameter name="poa_phone1" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:nil="true"/>
<Parameter name="poa_phone2" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:nil="true"/>
<Parameter name="cust_name_pre " xmlns:xsi="" xsi:nil="true"/>
<Parameter name="cust_gender"><StringValue>M</StringValue></Parameter>
<Parameter name="lc_middle_name" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:nil="true"/>
<Parameter name="lc_id_doc_date" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:nil="true"/>
<Parameter name="bill_identification_type"><StringValue>I</StringValue></Parameter>
<Parameter name="poa_contact_job_title" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:nil="true"/>
<Parameter name="poa_industry" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:nil="true"/>
<Parameter name="regcomp_Id_doc_date" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:nil="true"/>
<Parameter name="*bill_personal_id*"><StringValue>I71123010D</StringValue></Parameter>
<Parameter name="bill_id_doc_number"><StringValue>030117664</StringValue></Parameter>

I want to filter XML data on base of the 'Parameter name' for example bill_personal_id in previous data.

Can you help me on this?

    We're lacking some information about your environment.

    - Are you working in the database? (which version? Is the XML in a table? Which datatype?)
    - Are you working with Java or another language?

    - Do you want to extract the value you mentioned, or retrieve the whole document if it contains a specific parameter value?

    Yes I am working with XMLType in the database.

    Is there anyway of extracting with extract or extractValue function.

    select extractvalue(
           , '/ExtendedData/Parameter[@name="bill_personal_id"]/StringValue'
    from your_table
