Iraqi Oil Production

Iraqi Oil Production thumbnail

Completing my catch-up on oil production for the three most important Middle Eastern producers, here is Iraq.  Iraq had a substantial gain in 2012 – around half a million barrels per day – backslid a little in December, and then has apparently started to regain in February.

I expect further production gains in 2013, and, assuming the country can maintain stability, for Iraq to become a more and more important oil supplier over time.  Stability remains a risk, of course.  However, the country’s oil production is already far more stable than it was under Saddam (due to the latter being under international sanctions, no doubt).

Early Warning

    The faster we pump it, the faster it runs out.
