Iraq to Start Exporting Kirkuk Oil to Iran in Two Weeks

The Iraqi state-oil marketer SOMO has confirmed that crude exports to neighbouring Iran from Kirkuk oilfields is due to begin within two weeks.

Head of the organization, Alaa al-Yasiri said on Tuesday that the first rate of exports would be a daily average of 30,000 barrels of oil per day (bpd).

The Baghdad government decided on trading oil with Iran after its forces took over Kirkuk province back in October 2017. 

Yasiri said the exports from northern Kirkuk oilfields to Turkey could start "at any moment” as Baghdad and Erbil are going forward. 

The Kurdistan Regional Government is in control of the pipeline which sends crude from Kirkuk to Turkey’s Ceyhan port.
