US court orders seizure of Kurdish crude shipment near Texas

A US judge has ordered the seizure of $100m of oil inside a tanker anchored off Galveston, Texas, that Iraq claims was illegally pumped from wells in Kurdistan, Bloomberg has reported. Kurdish officials “misappropriated” more than one million barrels of oil from northern Iraq and exported them through a Turkish pipeline, according to a complaint filed yesterday in Houston federal court. US Magistrate Judge Nancy Johnson in Galveston authorised US marshals to seize the cargo and have it moved ashore for safekeeping until the dispute is resolved.
