September exports steady as northern oil sales rebound

Revenues fell with global oil prices, but higher export volumes through Ceyhan helped offset a pipeline leak that temporarily halted Basra Gulf tanker loadings.

Iraq’s nationwide exports edged up to 3.692 million barrels per day (bpd) in September, a slight increase over 3.667 million bpd in August.*

The federal government’s exports averaged 3.292 million bpd, including 72,000 bpd from the Turkish port of Ceyhan — a partial recovery in northern exports from an August dip to 36,000 bpd — according to preliminary Oil Ministry data.

The semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) exported 400,000 bpd, according to tanker loading data obtained by Iraq Oil Report, up from 381,000 bpd the prior month.
