BAGHDAD - Iraq’s oil output continued a downward trend in March, falling by 210,000 barrels per day compared to February to the lowest production levels in five months.
The steep drop was a result of several factors, including measures taken by the Oil Ministry to reduce output in state-run fields in line with an OPEC agreement, and also unplanned interruptions due to bad weather in southern Iraq.
