Iraq Oil Exports Up for April

By John Lee.

Iraq’s oil exports were up to 2.5 million bpd for April, an increase on March’s exports of 2.4 million bpd, despite the inactivity of the major northern Kirkuk-Ceyhan pipeline, which has been inoperable due to insurgent sabotage.

A statement from the ministry of oil said that April’s total of 75 million barrels brought in $7.5 billion in revenues. Iraq is currently dependent on exports through its southern terminals at Basra.
