Kurdish oil tanker fails to sell cargo in U.S.
A tanker carrying one million barrels of Kurdistan’s oil has left waters of the United States after the oil was not sold in the U.S.

The tanker headed east on Tuesday after Baghdad and Erbil reached an agreement on sharing oil revenues, after a legal dispute that lasted for 6 months.

The "United Kalaverwta" tanker which was anchored in the Gulf of Mexico in the United States since July headed to the Strait of Gibraltar across the Atlantic as Marine Management Services said, the operating company for the airline, based in Greece. Adding that it had not received any notification of unloading the shipment.

Last week, petitions submitted by lawyers for Iraq and Kurdistan Regional Government in Houston court showed that the ship will move soon to another destination to undergo special previews to keep its classified certificate, Shafaq News reported.

The lawyers told the court that it is also possible to reach an agreement on the shipment after the Iraqi government unveiled a draft budget for 2015 to the parliament.
