US policy favours selling of "Kurdish oil"

By Selen Tonkus and Ovunc Kutlu (AA)
The overturning by a U.S. court on Monday not  to seize a tanker off the coast of Texas carrying disputed Kurdish oil could pave the way for oil from the northern Iraqi autonomous region to be sold without the approval of Baghdad, signifying a major U.S. policy shift in favor of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) say energy analysts.

The United Kalavrvta tanker is anchored 60 miles off the U.S. coast with 1 million barrels of crude oil worth around $100 million, while the legal dispute between the Iraqi government in Baghdad and KRG in northern Iraq is settled. 
“I believe that the U.S. market will open up to Kurdish oil,” said Marina Ottaway, a Middle East expert at Wilson Center, a Washington-based think tank.

The prisoners are being released as part of a deal that was made in July to kick-start the peace negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis.

The High Court ruled that it did not have jurisdiction on the matter and that two prior applications that challenged the government's decision were similarly rejected.
