Oil tankers are stuck at the Iraqi-Jordan border, which has recently seen protest against Iraq's Prime Minister
Three-hundred tankers carrying crude oil are on Iraq’s border with Jordan waiting for Baghdad’s permission to enter the Kingdom.

The ministry said it has contacted Iraq’s oil ministry and oil marketing company to allow oil tankers to leave Iraq.
