Iraqi efforts to strengthen the oil tanker fleet.. What are the most prominent plans?

The Ministry of Oil revealed plans to contract with respectable foreign firms to improve the work of the National Tanker Company today, Friday, while also announcing steps to fortify the Iraqi oil tanker fleet with a new number following the entry of two Norwegian tankers into commercial operations.

The Ministry of Oil seeks to strengthen the fleet or the national carrier with a number of tankers, and two tankers recently entered the commercial business, implemented by the Norwegian company, which is one of the companies specialized in this field,” said Assem Jihad, the ministry’s spokesman.

Jihad made it clear that “the Ministry’s plans will not stop there, but rather seek to strengthen contracts with reputable international companies to enhance the work of the National Tanker Company, which is the national carrier of crude oil and its products.”

He noted that “Iraq’s main export ports are the southern ports represented by the port of Basra, the single buoys, and the port of Al-Amaya, in addition to the northern port, which is the Turkish port of Ceyhan,” pointing out that “the greatest weight is the southern port, which occupies most of the oil exports.”
