Erbil (IraqiNews.com) On Thursday Turkish officials in the energy sector revealed that a tanker is being loaded by the fifth shipment of Kurdistan crude oil from the Turkish port “Ceyhan” on the Mediterranean Sea; this shipment is likely to leave the port on Friday.

A shipping source said that the massive oil tanker Kamari reached Ceyhan port on Wednesday evening while officials said it “will carry a million barrels of crude oil.”

The Turkish officials added that “shipment buyer’s is unknown.”

So far, most of the Kurdish oil buyers are unknown, and the analysts say that the rising legal and political conflict with Baghdad may deter potential buyers.

Erbil began selling its oil through a new pipeline passing Turkey last May, but did not succeed so far only in the sale of one tanker which was loaded with oil from the pipeline.
