Power cuts halt Iraq's oil exports

BAGHDAD, Jan 8 (Reuters) - Power cuts have halted Iraq's crude oil exports from its southern Gulf terminals and saboteurs blew up domestic crude and gas pipelines in northern Iraq, shipping sources and officials said on Saturday.

Loadings at the southern Basra oil terminals stopped on 0845 (GMT) on Friday, disrupting all exports. Flows from the north have been halted for three weeks due to sabotage.

Iraq has the capacity to export about two million barrels per day from its offshore Basra and Khor al-Amya terminals in the Gulf.

Power cuts had already stopped exports in the south for 24 hours last month.

1. Oh -- so the reason Iraqi PEOPLE don't have power --
is because the elec. power is used to pump the OIL OIL OIL OIL OIL.

Why did bush want to invade Iraq?? OIL.

Neither he nor Haliburton give a damn about the people -- in fact the fewer Iraqi the oil barons have to deal with the better they probably like it.
