April is the second month that witnessed a high level of exports after it has remained up to 1.5 million barrels a day for a period.
The spokesman, Assim Jihad, said the exports in April include 1.594 million barrels a day through the ports in Basrah in south; another 11 thousand barrels were exported daily to Syria through Ein Zalah field near the city of Mosul in the north.
Jihad told Reuters "crude oil exports from Kirkuk in the north continue to stumble because of the continuing sabotage to the oil pipelines in the region".
The level of exports in March which reached 1.62 million barrels a day were the highest since September 2006, according to Jihad.(Source)AlSabah
