New Kirkuk-Ceyhan Oil Pipeline, a proposed oil pipeline in Iraq and Turkey.
The pipeline runs from Kirkuk, Iraq, to Ceyhan, Turkey.

In September 2019 the Iraqi Oil Ministry announced plans to build a 1,000-km oil pipeline that would partially replace transmission capacity lost due to attacks on the existing Kirku-Ceyhan Oil Pipeline. The pipeline would run parallel to the Kirkuk-Ceyhan Oil Pipeline.
In August 2020, Baghdad was reportedly preparing to launch tenders for the construction of its section of the line meaning that construction of that section could be expected within 2020.
