A new 24-inch oil pipeline from the Kurdish north of Iraq will facilitate exports through Turkey by the end of the year, DNO International said Wednesday.
Swedish energy company DNO, one of the premier operators in the Kurdish north of Iraq, said it was exporting an average 90,000 barrels of oil per day from its Tawke field in the region to Turkey.
Installation of a new 24-inch pipeline from the Tawke field is slated for completion by the end of the year.
"The new pipeline will increase export capacity and provide transportation system redundancy," the company said. "Other upgrades to infrastructure and facilities to increase production and processing capacity at the Tawke field are progressing as planned."
Baghdad and the semiautonomous Kurdish government are at odds over oil exports, with Baghdad saying it's the only one with the constitutional authority to approve oil exports.
DNO said it planned to have new wells in the Tawke field in production by early November. Elsewhere, the company said it found more oil than expected at a license area in Erbil, the Kurdish capital.
The company said this year it set three separate single-day production records at its Tawke field in the Kurdish north of Iraq -- daily production of 133,192 barrels of oil, daily deliveries to the Turkish sea port of Ceyhan of 126,048 barrels and daily sales of 114,760 barrels.
