I didn’t see where the oil from Kirkuk in the north is being processed through the national oil company. Is that happening?

Iraq sends first shipment of Kirkuk oil to Jordan as part of 10,000 bpd deal

ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – Iraqi and Jordanian officials announced that Amman would receive its first shipment this week of a planned 10,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil from Iraq's disputed province of Kirkuk as apart of an agreement made between the two neighboring countries in early 2019.  

Hala Zawati, Jordan's Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, told The Jordan Times on Saturday that the oil was being loaded onto trucks at Iraq's Baiji refinery on Saturday. On Sunday, Iraqi spokesman Assim Jihad confirmed to local Iraqi media that the trucks had begun their journey to the Hashemite Kingdom early that morning. 

Zawati said that more than 200 trucks, roughly 100 from each country, were expected to reach their destination of Jordan’s Petroleum Refinery Company in Zarqa on Tuesday. 

Iraq agreed in late January to provide Jordan with oil from Baiji relying on a price formula that is equal to the rate for Brent crude, a benchmark price for purchases of oil worldwide, minus transport costs and differing specifications. 

Related article: Iraq agrees to supply Jordan with 10,000 bpd of oil from Kirkuk 

The Jordan Times reported that Burj Al Hayat Transport and Trading Co. won the oil shipping tender in May, "and has since obtained 600 visas for drivers from both countries (300 Jordanians and 300 Iraqis), and will apply for more in the future."

Zawati was quoted by the Ammon news website in mid-August as saying that the necessary procedures to start the transfer were in their final stages and exports to Jordan would start in a short time, stressing that there were "no outstanding issues" that would hinder the successful arrival of the Iraqi oil in Jordan. 

The Energy and Mineral Resources Minister previously announced that the oil would start arriving at the end of July, but apparent complications had pushed back the date. 

Zawati traveled to Iraq earlier this year for a meeting with government officials in Baghdad following a visit by the country’s monarch, King Abdullah, a first since 2008. 

Iraq and Jordan signed a 2013 pipeline agreement worth about $18 billion and announced that multiple financing options would be considered. The Jordanian port of Aqaba, on the northern tip of the Red Sea, has long been a route for Iraqi imports and exports. 

A 1,700 km pipeline will have to be built from Iraq's southern port of Basra, through the province of Najaf and vast desert regions of embattled Anbar Province, into Jordan, and down again to the southern port of Aqaba.  

August saw the first increase in output for the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) as a result of higher supply from both Iraq and Nigeria, Reuters reported on Friday.

In January, Baghdad reluctantly agreed to an output-cutting deal made by an alliance of oil giants known as OPEC+ that aimed to bolster petroleum prices and "restore balance between supply and demand" in the market.   

A recent Reuters survey indicated that Saudi Arabia is not deviating from the plan to restrict output, but August's increases by Iraq and Nigeria was apparently enough to outweigh both this and additional losses caused by US sanctions on Iran.  

Iraq, OPEC’s second-largest oil producer following Saudi Arabia, almost entirely relies on oil to generate its revenue.

Iraq has been operating a pipeline that has been stalled for five years. Jordan is the biggest beneficiary
BAGHDAD (AFP) - A senior official in the energy sector revealed the implementation of a pilot pumping of oil into the main pipeline linking the Kirkuk oil fields with the city of Haditha for the first time in five years.
The official, who declined to be named, said in a press statement that "the aim of the experimental pumping is to determine the levels of damage and other technical problems in the body of the pipe, in a move that was interpreted as part of the steps to implement an oil agreement between Iraq and Jordan, concluded at a time Earlier this year, a pipeline from Basra to the port of Aqaba to export Iraqi crude with a capacity of about one million barrels per day.
This comes nearly two weeks after the Jordanian Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Hala Zawati, announced the arrival of the first shipment of crude oil exported from Iraq to Jordan, by 10,000 barrels of land over the border under the memorandum of understanding signed between the two countries last February, praising the efforts Iraq, which resulted in the completion of this important part of cooperation in the field of energy between the two sides thanks to the interest and support of the leaderships of the two countries.
According to the Iraqi official, "the North Oil Company in Kirkuk recently, a test pump in the pipeline from Kirkuk passing through the city of Baiji to the city of modern, at the station {K3} west of the country to see the current problems in the pipeline and maintenance," adding that "this process is underway For the first time in more than five years, the company stopped supplying oil to the pipeline through the pipeline because of ISIS's takeover of Anbar province in 2014. ”
The official added, "The pumping was to assess the pipeline's oil and to know the damage, and found that it is not large and the experimental pumping process succeeded and we identified the status of the line and its carrying capacity, to transport oil," pointing out that "the pipeline is ready to work within Iraqi pipeline network, and at another stage will determine whether to enter the project to export Iraqi oil from Basra to Aqaba, Jordan. "
At the same time, specialists in the oil sector in Iraq that the step is important to complete the pipeline, which depends on both Baghdad and Amman a lot to create a new export port for Iraq away from Turkey and the ports of Basra on the Gulf of security confusion.
According to experts, Jordan will ensure a continuous supply of oil for domestic consumption, as it will reduce the time allocated to complete the project as well as the financial cost, without the need to build a new pipeline at this distance of about 430 km.

Fathi al-Jaghbir said that the high production costs and the inability to compete within the Iraqi market with the same product imported from the countries of the region is one of the most important reasons that led to the decline of national exports to sisterly Iraq despite the agreements signed between the two countries.
Al-Jaghbir pointed out that strengthening the benefit of the agreements signed between the two countries needs time to achieve results on the ground, because of the need for the industrial sector to build a network of relations with the Iraqi merchant and importer and campaigns to promote the definition of the national product.
He explained that the Chamber, in cooperation with the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Supply, is working to organize the visits of a delegation to the Iraqi market in order to explore opportunities and increase exports to the Iraqi market.
He reiterated that Iraq is one of the important and promising markets to increase national exports, especially as the national industry is able to meet the needs of this market because of the high quality it enjoys, indicating that the industrial sector views Iraq as an important trading partner and on the basis of exchange of competition and common interests to reach integration Economic and joint ventures serving the two countries.
"The industrial sector needs time to enhance the utilization of the agreements signed between the two countries during the month of February in order to build a network of relations and find importers of Jordanian goods inside the Iraqi market," said Ihab Qadri, head of the export file to Iraq at the Jordan Chamber of Industry. .
Qadri said that there are technical obstacles related to transport and customs are still on the way to the solution; where there is a response and cooperation by the Iraqi government in this regard.
Qadri, who is the representative of the garment and knitting industry sector, expected that the national exports to Iraq will rise during the coming period, stressing that the agreement signed between Jordan and Iraq has contributed significantly in reducing the decline in exports.
He noted that there are great opportunities for Jordanian products to enter and meet the needs of the Iraqi market, pointing out that the Chamber organizes visits to Iraq in order to discover opportunities and networking with Iraqi traders and importers.
