Iran to up Oil Output at Joint Iraq Fields

By John Lee.

Iran's Minister for Petroleum, Bijan Nadar Zangeneh (pictured), has revealed plans to increase production at the country’s western joint fields with Iraq by 200,000 bpd.

The increase will happen over the next eight months and "surge to 700,000 bpd in the years to come", according to a report from PressTV.

Iran has five joint fields with Iraq, which include North Azadegan, South Azadegan, North Yaran, South Yaran and Yadavaran; two of which -- Azadegan and Yadavaran -- reportedly hold the biggest reservoirs of Iranian oil.
