Iraq Completes Technical Preparations for Oil Pipeline to Jordan's Aqaba

Oil pipeline expected to export up to 1 million barrels per day

Iraq Oil Minister Thamer Ghadhban has announced the completion of technical preparations for the extension of the country's oil pipeline to Aqaba port in Jordan, with the pipelines export capacity expected to reach 1 million barrels per day.

The technical plans cover numerous elements of the project including funding, capacity, components and connections to oilfields in Kirkuk.

With Iraq heavily reliant on its Southern ports for almost all of its oil exports, the completion of planning for the construction of the Aqaba pipeline is key for the country to develop its export capacity.
