Crude Flow in Iraq-Turkey Pipeline to Resume

Oil pumping in the Iraqi pipeline carrying Kurdish and Kirkuk oil to Turkey’s Mediterranean port of Ceyhan has been halted since last Thursday, shipping agents and Turkish energy sources said.
Crude flow was briefly resumed on Thursday after the pipeline was attacked by Kurdish militants on Wednesday, but was once again stopped due to maintenance work, Trade Arabia reported.
Pumping is expected to resume on Tuesday, energy officials said. Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said on Monday crude flow in the Iraqi pipeline has partially resumed after militants carried out an attack last week. “Of the two lines in the Iraq-Turkey pipeline, there is no flow in one of them and repairs are ongoing. There is flow in the backup line,” Yildiz said, adding that pumping rates had fallen because of the attacks.
