By Terry Wade HOUSTON (Reuters) - A tanker loaded with $100 million of Kurdish crude oil cannot be delivered in Texas soon because of risks for buyers as Iraq mulls further legal challenges, so a month-long standoff will drag on, a source close to the matter said on Tuesday. Buyers of Kurdish crude could face lawsuits from Baghdad if the oil moves close to U.S. "Right now they don't really have a way to get the oil onshore." Despite the court's ruling, cargo handling companies and a would-be buyer balked at bringing the oil ashore on Tuesday. In another sign of possible delays, not one cargo handling company stepped forward to say it would transfer oil from the United Kalavrvta tanker to smaller ships that can fit into the port of Galveston, the U.S.
