A member of the Parliamentary Oil and Gas Committee, Intisar Hassan, confirmed today, Thursday, that the efforts of the Ministry of Oil have succeeded in stopping the waste of Iraqi oil through the Kurdistan region, indicating that Baghdad is now imposing its conditions on Turkey and Kurdistan in exporting oil.
Hassan said in a statement to Al-Maalouma agency, "Iraqi sovereignty will be imposed on all oil exports, including those coming from the Kurdistan region, through control by the Iraqi National Oil Company."
She added, "The final decision regarding oil exports leaving the Kurdistan region will be in the hands of the federal government in the capital, Baghdad, through the National Oil Company (SOMO)."
Hassan indicated that "the Ministry of Oil is discussing with Turkey the mechanisms for re-operating the Ceyhan oil pipeline."
The actions of the Iraqi government and international courts continue to tighten the screws on the Kurdistan Regional Government regarding the export of crude oil, the latest of which was the suspension of Ankara's transit to export it through the port of Ceyhan.
Iraq won an arbitration case, which it filed last Thursday, against Ankara regarding the export of crude oil from the Kurdistan region through the Turkish port of Ceyhan without referring to the Iraqi oil marketing company "SOMO" by the arbitral tribunal of the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris.
