Military forces in Iraq are preparing an attempt to gain control of an oil route located near the Iran border. The border has historically been used to transport oil throughout the Hamrin mountain range.

A Reuters article reported, “Trucking crude oil to Iran was agreed under a swap agreement announced in December by the two countries, to allow a resumption of oil exports from Kirkuk. Iraq and Iran have agreed to swap up to 60,000 barrels per day of crude produced from Kirkuk for Iranian oil to be delivered to southern Iraq”.
