Bomb Disrupts Baiji Pipeline

By John Lee.

Oil ministry spokesman Asim Jihad has said that a bomb attack caused an explosion in the 16-inch pipeline transporting fuel oil from Beiji [Bayji, Baiji] refinery (pictured) to Nineveh province on Saturday.

He said the ministry expected repairs from the blast, 390 km (240 miles) north of Baghdad, to take several days.

According to the report from Reuters, fleets of trucks were transporting oil to Nineveh, which gets all its domestic fuel via the damaged pipeline.
