Oil Exports to Turkey to Resume

Iraqi crude exports to the Mediterranean port town of Ceyhan in Turkey could resume in a week after an explosion blamed on an attack damaged an oil pipeline on Thursday, an Iraqi oil official said.

“We are sure now that it was sabotage not a technical failure… The time frame to fix the pipeline and resume pumping oil is about a week,” an official at state-run North Oil Co told Reuters. (Reporting by Mustafa Mahmoud; Editing by Rania El Gamal)
