Turkey Seeking Return of Significant Oil Flows from Kirkuk to Ceyhan

Announcement comes from Turkish Ambassador to Iraq Fatih Yildiz following a meeting with Iraq President Barham Salih

Turkish Ambassador to Iraq Fatih Yildiz has revealed that Turkey is seeking to re-establish oil flows from Kirkuk to Ceyhan through the KRG pipeline, with targets to reach previous peak levels. 

Following a resumption in oil flows from Kirkuk, with the region now producing around 370,00 barrels per day (bpd), the pipeline is currently exporting an average of around 80,000 bpd, with the remaining oil supplying local refineries.

Following a meeting with Iraqi President Barham Salih, Yildiz also revealed that Turkey are seeking to improve trade relations with Iraq and have plans to open 4 consulates throughout the country. These will consist of the reopening of consulates in Mosul and Basra with additional options in Najaf and Kirkuk to compliment a consulate based in Erbil, Kurdistan Region.
