Iraq to Increase Kirkuk Oil Output

Oil Minister Jabar al-Luaibi said Iraq plans to increase production from oilfields in Kirkuk to 1 million barrels per day and has visited the Bai Hasan and Avana fields to order work be accelerated to restore operations soon, the ministry’s spokesman said on Monday, Reuters reported. Exports from oilfields in Kirkuk have been on hold since Iraqi forces took back control of the fields from the Kurds last month. On October 17, Iraqi forces took control of the Bai Hasan and Avana oilfields northwest of Kirkuk, after Kurdish Peshmerga fighters pulled out from the region, security sources said. On Nov. 2, the oil ministry requested that the Kurdish authorities allow Baghdad to use their pipeline to export Kirkuk crude but received no response, Asim Jihad told Reuters.
