  • Iraq and Turkey Consider Rebuilding Oil Pipeline
As of October 14, 2019, Iraq and Turkey have announced that they were looking into constructing a second pipeline that could more than double existing export capacity. Due to the reestablishment of control by Iraqi militias and the Central Government over areas liberated from ISIS, Ankara is turning towards Baghdad for new energy deals. The new pipeline would create an alternative route for Iraqi oil exports and would also connect to infrastructure in Central and Southern Iraq. This would improve the country’s energy security as oil exports can be diverted towards the north in case the Strait of Hormuz is choked off.
