Iraq unrest to boost demand for Turkish oil products - minister

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said on Thursday the unrest in Iraq and resulting halt in refinery production there will boost Iraqi demand for refined oil products from Turkey.

However, Yildiz told reporters that such demand would cause a build-up of activity at its Habur border gate to northern Iraq which could create a bottle-neck.
