(Iraq Now News)-

Iraq’s oil minister has ordered urgent repairs to a disused pipeline from the country’s northern fields to a Turkish port.

Iraq wants to restore the pipeline’s export capacity of 250 000 – 400 000 bpd and possibly boost volumes in the future,. Iraqi security forces regained control of the pipeline and surrounding territory after advancing against Islamic State late last year.

The oil ministry didn’t say when repairs on the link, which would connect at the border with a Turkish pipeline, would be completed.

A spokesman for the Iraqi Oil Ministry, Asim Jihad, said yesterday that the ministry had called on the North Oil Co.

to "speed up the implementation of the project to rehabilitate the oil pipeline network of crude oil after the victories achieved by our security forces."

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said in late August that Nineveh province and its capital, Mosul, were liberated from the Islamic State, also known as ISIL, ISIS, and Daesh.

That led the federal government to start a reconstruction campaign in the region after years of battling the terrorist threat.

The move could eliminate the central government’s need to export crude via Iraq’s Kurdish region and further isolate the independence-seeking Kurds.
