In a recent development late April, Iraq’s Kurdish Regional Government and Iran signed an agreement that will allow Tehran to send 3 to 4 million liters of refined fuel oil in exchange for crude.
Iran signed an agreement with Iraq’s Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) for oil and natural gas.
Abdullah Akrayi, the KRG official responsible for Iran affairs, told journalists that a delegation led by former Iranian Oil Minister Rostam Qassemi made the deal with the regional government’s Energy Minister Ashti Hawrami.
The agreement proposes the construction of two pipelines between the Kurdish region of Northern Iraq and Iran, and the regional government would receive between 3 and 4 million liters of refined oil fuel and natural gas in return for sending crude oil to Iran.
