Explosion halts Iraqi oil flow to Turkey.

By bne IntelliNews August 7, 2012
An explosion located in Midyat town of Mardin on Kirkuk-Ceyhan pipeline halted the flow of Iraqi oil to Turkey, Turkish Energy Ministry officials told Reuters. Reuters reported that the cause of the explosion was the separatist terrorist organization PKK and natural gas flow may not resume for 10 days. The Ceyhan terminus was not affected due to reserves held at the port. Turkey imports daily 300,000 barrels of oil from the northern Iraq.
