Iraq oil ministry announces fuel exports to Lebanon in 2021


BAGHDAD – Iraq’s oil minister said on Monday that an agreement has been reached with Lebanon to start fuel export supplies to Beirut in 2021 using global prices, the oil ministry said in a statement.

Fuel supply quantities will be “limited and to be announced later” and will cover part of Lebanon’s needs for fuel to generate power, the ministry cited Jabbar as saying.
