Al-Shahristani said Iraq is "pumping between 300,000 and 400,000 barrels a day of Kirkuk crude to the Turkish export terminal of Ceyhan."
The pipeline has been mostly closed due to constant sabotage since the U.S.-led invasion.
Iraq has also agreed with Syria to repair and subsequently reopen another key pipeline, an 880-kilometer link connecting Kirkuk and the Syrian port of Baniyas.
