Kurdish oil trade with Turkey rising, more to come  KHOR MOR: Kurdistan is taking its first steps towards gaining independence from Baghdad in the sale of its oil and gas with a convoy of trucks taking the condensate liquid fuel bi-products of a remote gas field directly into Turkey. At least 15 trucks a day are loading up with high quality condensate at Khor Mor's gas plant and then trundling down a bumpy road to start the two-day journey to Mersin on the Turkish Mediterranean. In return, Turkey is trucking back small quantities of diesel fuel and kerosene to use in the autonomous region's power plants. "It's a very simple but symbolic start to direct oil trade between the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and Turkey - and there will be more to come," said an official familiar with the barter-type operation between private companies. "Neither side is thinking about stopping." But Baghdad wants the trade to stop as it believes Iraq's central government has ...

Kuwait oil output was 3mn bpd in Aug  DUBAI: Kuwait produced around 3 million barrels a day (bpd) of crude oil in August, up around 600,000 bpd from July, a Kuwaiti industry source said on Sunday.   The increase in the OPEC member's production was mainly due to more demand from Asia, the source said.
