Iraq resumes pumping oil on pipeline to Turkey

KIRKUK, Iraq, July 4 (Reuters) - Iraq’s North Oil Co. resumed pumping on the Kirkuk-to-Ceyhan oil pipeline at test levels on Sunday after fixing a technical problem that shut down the flow late on Thursday, a company source said.

The source, who asked not to be named, did not say if a rupture caused by a bomb planted by suspected Kurdish separatist rebels on the Turkish side of the border had also been fixed. (Reporting by Mustafa Mahmoud; Writing by Michael Christie; Editing by Maureen Bavdek)
