Kirkuk-Ceyhan oil flow halted since start of March - officials

ANKARA, March 19 (Reuters) - Crude oil flow through the Kirkuk-Ceyhan pipeline between Iraq and Turkey has been suspended since the beginning of this month due to sabotage, Turkish energy officials told Reuters on Wednesday.

It was not immediately clear when the oil flow will resume.

The decades-old pipeline carrying Kirkuk crude to Turkey’s Mediterranean port of Ceyhan has been attacked repeatedly by militants and has also suffered technical problems. (Reporting by Orhan Coskun; Writing by Seda Sezer; Editing by Daren Butler)
