Tanker Carrying Kurdish Oil Arrives on Houston anchorage
A ship carrying crude from Iraq’s Kurdistan region is off the coast of Texas, with the future of the oil aboard murky because of uncertainty over who has the right to sell it. The United Kalavryta is operated by Unicom Management Services Ltd., said Andy Kendrick, a spokesman for the U.S. Coast Guard. 
It’s scheduled to dock in Galveston, Texas, tomorrow, according to ship-tracking data compiled by Bloomberg. Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government is seeking to sell oil from its territory and claim revenues to help finance its effort for further independence from the national government. Officials in Baghdad have said the country’s oil revenues belong to the central government. 
“We are aware there is a tanker off the coast of Florida currently, but our policy here has not changed — Iraq’s energy resources belong to all of the Iraqi people,” Marie Harf, a spokeswoman for the U.S. State Department, told reporters today in Washington.
