Pumping Resumes on Iraq Oil Pipeline to Turkey

Source: Reuters 1/6/2016, Location: Middle East

Oil exports from northern Iraq through a pipeline to the Turkish port city of Ceyhan resumed on Wednesday after a 10-hour stoppage caused by a technical fault on the Turkish side of the border, a senior Turkish energy official said.

Two sources from Iraq's state-run North Oil Company (NOC), which operates fields that export through the pipeline, confirmed that the oil flow had been restored.

Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) uses the pipeline to export oil from its own fields and disputed fields operated by NOC but under Kurdish control.

It said NOC's contribution to the pipeline's exports averaged 166,660 barrels per day in November, the last month for which data is available.

Acts of sabotage against the pipeline on the Iraqi side last year cost the KRG hundreds of millions of dollars.

The bulk of Iraq's oil exports are produced and shipped from its southern provinces.
