Turkey has begun importing 5 to 10 road tankers of crude from Northern Iraq daily and the volume could rise to 100-200 tankers per day, Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yıldız told reporters on Friday.

Most Kurdish oil is still pumped into the national pipeline system. One pipeline carrying about 60,000 bpd already feeds directly from Kurdistan's Tawke oilfield into the main pipeline to the Turkish port of Ceyhan.
