Iraqi Kurdistan has shipped over 8 million barrels of oil from the Turkish port of Ceyhan since May, sources and energy officials said, as the autonomous region employs new tactics to establish independent oil sales defying Baghdad.The 11th tanker sailed from the port Thursday, a Turkish official said, with the Kurdistan Regional Government now using a number of smaller tankers as well as its original 1 million barrel carriers to evade Baghdad's efforts to block the sales.Total shipments of more than 8 million barrels are much higher than previously reported.
