Iraq pumped over 400,000 barrels per day (bpd) of Kirkuk oil through its northern pipeline to Turkey on Monday and has sustained the flow uninterrupted for a week, a shipper said.

Iraq oil export flow to Turkey steady - shipper
Iraq has boosted exports through the line since last summer. Before that, the pipeline suffered regular sabotage attacks and technical hitches that had stopped the flow for much of the time since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in March 2003.

Stocks at the Turkish terminal of Ceyhan stood at 2.7 million barrels, the shipper said.

The flow through the line was around 18,000 barrels per hour, he added.

A vessel sailed from Ceyhan at the weekend with 600,000 barrels for France's Total, the shipper said.
