ERBIL - The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has announced that it will market crude from oil fields under its control sent autonomously of Iraq’s central government to the Turkish port of Ceyhan in a pipeline it claims as its own, with the first shipment up for sale before the end of January.

On the KRG’s website late on Jan. 8, the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) gave “public notice of the commencement of the sale of its first shipment of crude oil exported via Kurdistan Region’s new pipeline through Turkey to the Port of Ceyhan.”
