Iraq's federal government and Kurdistan region produced a combined 4.591 million barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil in March, a modest month-on-month increase.

According to field-by-field data compiled by Iraq Oil Report,* production from fields under Baghdad’s control averaged 4.139 million bpd in March, compared with 4.073 million bpd in February when two southern fields were temporarily shut down. Output from fields controlled by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) edged up slightly to 453,000 bpd from 448,000 bpd the previous month.
