Iraq’s oil exports to Jordan will be increased by 4,000 barrels per day (bpd) in accordance with an agreement between the countries, the Jordanian semi-official Addustour daily quoted a local official as saying on Saturday.
“Since September 13, 2008, Jordan received 8,000 bpd of oil from Iraq,” the official told Jordanian paper.
“The process moves smoothly, and security improvement in Iraq contributed to facilitating all required arrangements,” he said.
He expected that starting as of the coming week, Iraq’s oil exports to Jordan will be increased by 4,000 bpd, to reach 12,000 bpd, to achieve the targeted amount agreed upon by the two sides.
