Parliamentary Oil: Exporting the region’s share will resume via the Turkish port of Ceyhan

On Friday, the Parliamentary Oil Committee confirmed that the region’s share of oil exports will soon resume through the Turkish port of Ceyhan.

In a statement to the press, Committee member Sabah Sobhi confirmed that the issue of halting oil exports between Iraq and Turkey through the Turkish port of Ceyhan has been resolved. Turkey has assured that the pipelines used for exporting oil to the port of Ceyhan are ready, and has also made the necessary arrangements related to the issue after the international arbitration of the Paris Court.

Sobhi stated that halting exports from the port of Ceyhan is not in the best interest of Turkey, Iraq, or Kurdistan, and that efforts are being made to resolve the issues and resume exports.

He stated that the export of the Kirkuk fields’ share to the Ceyhan port will soon be resumed. He further added that Iraq has suffered financial losses due to the halt in exports. The amount of money lost could have been used to resolve the problem of the region’s dues and salaries.
