Iraq and Syria complete pipeline study

Mar 29, 2002 01:00 AM

Iraq and Syria have completed a feasibility study for the construction of a new oil pipeline with a capacity of 1.4 mm bpd. Syrian Oil Minister Ibrahim Haddad said the pipeline is meant to carry Iraqi oil to Syria. Haddad said the new pipeline would replace an aging pipeline that was revived more than a year ago.
Haddad told that the new pipeline would be built but await permission from the United Nations before operated. The United Nations is meant to oversee all Iraqi oil exports.

Britain and the United States have accused Syria of importing as much as 200,000 barrels of oil from the current pipeline in violation of UN sanctions. Syria has maintained that the aging pipeline, which had been dormant for nearly 20 years, is being operated on an experimental basis.
