Kurdistan’s independence poll raises the heat in Iraq but what does it mean for oil?

September 28, 2017 (9:09 mins)



Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdistan raised regional tensions this week with its non-binding referendum for independence. The result, a resounding yes, was a foregone conclusion but the poll has rankled some of Kurdistan's key allies and neighbors.

S&P Global Platts senior writer Robert Perkins, head of EMEA crude oil Paula VanLaningham and Platts contributor Ben Lando discuss the implications for Kurdistan's key oil exports, the impact on upstream deals with foreign companies, and how the current standoff could play out.
