The terminal is the main source of Iraq’s revenues, a key supplier to the global energy market and an obvious target for insurgents aiming to thwart the country’s economic recovery.

The Iraqi Ministry of Oil announced that oil exports rose from 3.52 million barrels per day (b/d) to 3.566 million b/d in July, Reuters reported.

During July, selling price averaged $61.156 per barrel, with total revenues reaching $6.76 billion.

Exports from the southern Basra oilfields reached 3.435 million b/d, up from 3.39 million b/d in June, while shipments from Iraq’s northern Kirkuk oilfields to the Turkish port of Ceyhan averaged 101,000 b/d.

Iraq’s production remains below its the allowed quota of nearly 5 million b/d, as per the agreement sponsored by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

In June, OPEC’s crude output fell to a new five-year low, reaching 29.6 million b/d, down by 170,000 b/d compared with May, recording its lowest level since April 2014.
