Iraq's Nov. Oil Exports From South Up at 3.5 Million bpd

Oil exports from Iraq’s southern ports rose to an average of 3.5 million barrels per day in November from 3.35 million bpd in October, Basra Oil Company Director General Ihsan Abdul Jabbar said on Friday.

Southern exports are on the rise, as Iraq looks to offset the halting of exports from its Kirkuk oilfields in the north in mid-October after Baghdad government forces dislodged Kurdish Peshmerga fighters from the area, Reuters reported.

A southern export figure of 3.9 million bpd released by the oil ministry on Thursday, the highest ever, referred just to output on Nov. 29, Abdul Jabbar said.

 “The November average was 3.5 million bpd,” he said.

The Iraqi government’s November revenues from oil exports were at over $6 billion, an oil ministry spokesman later said in a statement, with a total of over 105 million barrels sold. The average price per barrel sold was $57.194, the spokesman said.

Southern exports are shipped by state-owned Basra Oil and sold by state oil marketer SOMO on behalf of the central government. SOMO is also in charge of selling crude from Kirkuk but there were no exports from there in October or November, the oil ministry said.

The Kurdistan Regional Government in northern Iraq sells crude from its own fields through a pipeline to the Turkish Mediterranean port of Ceyhan.

Iraq is OPEC’s second-largest producer after Saudi Arabia with an output capacity of 4.8 million bpd, which Baghdad aims to increase to 5 million bpd.
