Oil flow through Iraq's Kirkuk-Ceyhan pipeline was halted on Tuesday evening due to a leak on a rusty section of the pipeline, an Iraqi oil official said.

Repairs are expected to take around 24 hours to replace the damaged part and test pumping should follow shortly. The pipeline carries medium sour Iraqi Kirkuk crude to the Turkish port of Ceyhan on the Mediterranean.

"A rusty segment caused a crack in the pipeline. Our crew is working to replace it and resume flow in 24 hours," an official at Iraq's state North Oil Company (NOC) told Reuters.
