Oil Pipeline to Turkey recaptured from IS Militants to be Reopened

The Kirkuk Ceyhan pipeline crosses territory taken by Islamic State militants in 2014 and recaptured by U.S.-backed Iraqi forces over the past two years.

Iraq will reopen an old crude oil pipeline to Turkey, bypassing one operated by the Kurdistan Regional Government.

Iraqi oil minister Jabar al-Luaibi has asked state-owned North Oil Co., the operator of the Kirkuk fields, to begin restoring and reopening the Kirkuk Ceyhan pipeline.
