BAGHDAD--The United States has allowed Iraq to import Iranian gas for its power grid for another three months by extending a waiver to U.S. sanctions for Baghdad, two government sources said on Saturday.
One of the sources, who asked not to be named, said the extension was given during a phone call between Prime Minister Adel Abdel Mahdi and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
Construction on Mariner East 2 and Revolution is stopped until Revolution is in compliance; Mariner East 1 remains out of service due to sinkhole issue.
Safeguards considered a blow to country’s oil industry.
Judge Richard Gergel of the U.S. District Court in South Carolina issued the decision in response to a motion filed by a range of conservation and business groups and coastal cities opposed to the administration’s efforts to expand U.S. offshore drilling.
