Iraq plans to build a new pipeline to replace a damaged section of the Kirkuk-Ceyhan oil pipeline, Reuters reports.
The new pipeline will run from Baji to the Fish-Khabur area along the Turkish border, the Iraqi oil ministry said, according to the news agency.
At present, there is no official timeline for the project.
The Kirkuk-Ceyhan pipeline fell out of use when ISIS conquered much of northern Iraq in 2014.
Last month Baghdad announced that it would re-open the pipeline, the Financial Times reported at the time. The pipeline formerly carried oil from the Kirkuk oilfields to the Turkish port of Ceyhan.
Prior to the central government’s operation to seize control of the Kirkuk oilfields from the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), crude from the oilfields was exported to Ceyhan via a KRG pipeline.
