Iraq could transport up to a million barrels of oil per day through the Jordanian port of Aqaba (pictured), according to a report from The National.
Ali Nazar Faeq Al Shatari, deputy director general for the State Oil Marketing Organization (SOMO) told The National:
“That project is still in place and we’re going to go ahead with it. We need another outlet for our crude oil,”
There has been little detail on the scheme’s timeline for completion or the scope of the project.
