Kurdistan to extend oil pipeline to Turkey, Horami
2/2/2013 3:04 PM

ARBIL/ Aswat al-Iraq: Kurdish minister for natural resources Ashti Horami announced that the Kurdish region government is intending to build an oil pipeline for exports to Turkey without waiting any settlement with Baghdad.

In an interview with the BBC, he added that "the Kurdish region does not need a permission from Baghdad to build its infrastructure, including the oil sector, because the constitution permits so".

"The Kurdish government was preferring to work and coordinate with the central government in oil industry, but the other side does not want to cooperate which made the mission very difficult", he added.

He disclosed that 50 oil contracts were signed till now with the Kurdish government.

Horami added that "there are more international oil companies wish to work and we are planning to increase our exports to one million b/d, which need more companies to work".
