Plans to resume oil exports from Iraqi Kurdistan are on hold due to ongoing repair work on a pipeline running from the Kirkuk oil fields to Turkey, the regional government said in a statement.Since then, the Kurds have trucked smaller quantities of oil across the border while building their own separate pipeline to Turkey in defiance of Baghdad, which retaliated earlier this year by cutting the region's monthly budget allocation.More than 1 million barrels of oil have already flowed through the new Kurdish pipeline into storage tanks at Ceyhan, but Ankara has sought Baghdad's blessing before allowing exports to begin.
