Baghdad Halts Kirkuk Oil Exports via KRI

By John Lee.

Iraq Oil Report, citing Iraqi Oil Minister Adel Abdel Mahdi [Adil Abd Al-Mahdi], says Baghdad has stopped oil exports through the Kurdish region, to put pressure the Kurdistan Regional Government to resume talks about sharing oil revenues.

Sources confirmed to Reuters that the state-run North Oil Company (NOC) has stopped pumping oil from fields it operates in the Kirkuk area through a pipeline to the Turkish port of Ceyhan.

The NOC normally exports 150,000 barrels a day through the pipeline.
