Jordan received 196,500 barrels of Iraqi oil during the first half of March, with a daily rate of 13,100 barrels per day (bbl/d), the Jordan Times reported.

According to Zawati, the ministries from both sides have agreed to increase the number of shipments to the Jordan Petroleum Refinery to be receiving the full amount that the two sides had settled on in March.

Zawti elaborated that the total amount of Iraqi crude oil received by the Jordan Petroleum Refinery totaled 2 million barrels from September 2019 up until March 15.

Additionally, the statement noted that the Iraqi crude oil is sold to Jordan based on the average monthly price of Brent crude, from which the difference in transport costs and the difference in specifications are deducted.
