Baiji Refinery Output 'Highest This Year'

Production Baiji [Beiji, Bayji] refinery has reached 300,000 barrels per day, according to an official spokesman at the oil ministry.

Essam Jehad told Aswat al-Iraq news agency that the refinery’s production was at its highest level this year.

Output at the complex, which processes crude into diesel and gasoline, fell by 150,000 barrels after a recent terrorist attack.

Apart from the production unit under maintenance due to restart within a few days, a fourth unit was undamaged and continues to process up to 60,000 barrels a day.

The government also plans to increase production from the Ash Shaabiya refinery in Basra.

    This is very nice, BUT when will the oil companies get paid for the oil they export ?? VERY soon I do hope! Otherwise the concept of "arab business immorality" will mean "Iraq bus" and the investors will fly away
