Iraq’s Baiji refinery will take at least a year to repair
ANKARA, September 4, 2014
Iraqi Kurdistan Regional Government’s Natural Reources Minister Ashti Hawrami said that it would take more than a year to repair the Baiji Refinery, after it was damaged in an attack by ISIS militants in June.
“After the ISIS attack it will take at least a year for the Baiji refinery to be repaired,” he said at a speech during an energy conference in Istanbul.
The pipeline connecting Kirkuk with the Turkish port city of Ceyhan, would be unable to transport oil for years to come after being sabotaged, Hawrami added. -- Reuters
