Plans to export piped gas from Iraqi Kurdistan to Turkey and beyond are gathering traction, encouraged by US government support and the urgent need for alternatives to Russian gas. Some see the region being able to start exporting within four years. But daunting obstacles lie in the way, notably opposition from Iran, which opposes a US-backed project aiming to reduce Turkey’s Iranian gas impots, and from Baghdad, which has a major gas supply deficit of its own and is locked in a bitter dispute with the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) about who controls the Kurdish oil and gas sector.
