Kurds agree to export crude via SOMO -Iraq deputy PM for energy

BAGHDAD, Feb 19 (Reuters) - Iraq’s Deputy Prime Minister for Energy said the Kurds had agreed to export crude from their autonomous region via the State Oil Marketing Organisation (SOMO), potentially easing a major sticking point in an ongoing row between them.
