GENEVA, Two tankers thought to be carrying exports of oil from Iraqi Kurdistan have made their way to Asia, according to ship tracking data, bringing the number of Kurdish oil-loaded tankers believed to have reached the region to four.

The shipments represent one portion of the oil Iraqi Kurdistan has exported from the Turkish port of Ceyhan since May in defiance of the federal government in Baghdad, which claims sole authority over the country's natural resources.

The tankers United Emblem and United Dynamic arrived off Singapore fully laden over the last two weeks, according to data provided by tanker tracking website Marine Traffic.
