Iraq to resume oil exports via pipeline across Syria

Iraq is expected to start exporting oil through the Lebanese port of Tripoli next month and could be pumping 400,000 barrels a day here by mid-June, the Lebanese oil minister said. He said that pumping from Iraq through a pipeline across Syria would start initially at 200,000 barrels a day and could be double that within two months. Oil-industry sources said total Iraqi exports by pipeline across Turkey, Syria, and Lebanon could rise to more than 1 million barrels a day by mid-June, after falling to zero in the early weeks of the Gulf war.
