Iraq Plans New Oil Export Pipeline via Turkey Port

Date : Dec 04, 2017

Iraq plans to build a new pipeline from Baiji to Fishkabur, enabling Kirkuk oil to be exported again from Turkey’s Ceyhan port, the country’s Oil Ministry said.

 

Kirkuk’s oil was previously being exported via the Kurdistan Regional Government’s (KRG) pipeline to Ceyhan, but this has been on hold since Baghdad took control of the area.

 

Plans to restore Baghdad’s existing oil pipeline to Turkey, which was badly damaged by militants in 2014, have been scrapped, according to the report.
