Background

In 2014, the director of the energy commission of the Kurdish Regional Government said that natural gas flow through the Erbil-Ceyhan pipeline when completed in 2017.[1]

World Pipelines listed the project in 2015 as an example of impeded development of infrastructure due to disputes between the Kurdistan Regional government and the Federal Iraqi Government.[2]

As of August 2020, no progress has been found, the proposal is assumed to be cancelled.
