    Tawke oil field near the town of Zacho in Dohuk province about 250 miles north of Baghdad, Iraq.

    The Kurdish government in Iraq announced Wednesday it would resume oil exports from the region later this week. Erbil had shut down exports in April, blaming the central government in Baghdad for withholding payments owed to international oil companies working in the semi-autonomous north.

With foreign companies seemingly focusing their financial energy in northern Iraq, however, the gesture may be more of a power play than a confidence-building effort.
