Oil exports from Iraq’s Kurdistan via the Turkish Mediterranean port of Ceyhan were still flowing at sharply reduced rates on Saturday and Sunday, two shipping sources told Reuters.
Flows were fluctuating at between 200,000 and 250,000 barrels per day versus normal flows of around 600,000 bpd.
Exports have dropped since Wednesday last week when Iraqi military forces took over the Kirkuk area from the Kurdish Peshmerga forces, resulting in a drop in output from nearby fields.
