Crude flow in Iraqi Kurdistan's oil pipeline via Turkey has been halted for the past week as the storage tanks in the port of Ceyhan are full, , industry sources and officials said on Wednesday.

"The flow has stopped. It's been around a week. The tanks are full. They are holding about 2.7 million barrels of oil," one source with knowledge of the matter said.
