Iraq Reveals Oilfields Output to Win Over OPEC Ahead of Meeting

Iraq published data showing a rare level of detail for its oil production and exports, a week after inviting energy reporters to Baghdad to make a case that the country is pumping more crude than analysts and OPEC acknowledge.

The country’s state oil marketing agency released a statement on Sunday showing September production figures for each of the 26 fields it controls, plus a single output figure for the semi-autonomous Kurdish region, which manages its crude independently. Previous monthly statements showed just two figures: total production and total exports. The Oil Marketing Co., known as SOMO, also provided detailed data on exports and domestic consumption.

OPEC’s second-largest producer says it pumped more than 4.7 million barrels a day last month, several hundred thousand barrels a day more than oil-industry watchers recognize. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries assesses output for its 14 members based on such secondary sources. Iraq wants the group to accept the ministry’s figures before a Nov. 30 meeting at which OPEC could limit production for its members.

Oil Minister Jabbar al-Luaibi complained about OPEC data at a meeting in September in Algiers. He adopted a milder approach last week, inviting reporters to Baghdad for a tour of the national museum and a detailed discussion of production figures. “We want you to see for yourselves what our production is,” he said on Oct. 23.

Transparency Push

The field-specific data for September sheds light on how SOMO calculates Iraqi production. However, it doesn’t provide a breakdown of Kurdish production, which accounts for much of the difference between the data cited by SOMO and secondary sources.

“It’s an effort of transparency and backing up their numbers, but I’m not quite sure how effective it’s going to be,” Robin Mills, chief executive officer of consultant Qamar Energy, said by phone from Dubai. “The biggest discrepancy is likely to be in the Kurdish fields.”

Production from the Kurdish enclave in northern Iraq averaged 546,000 barrels a day last month, according to SOMO. That figure is an estimate because the central government has not received the latest production data from Kurdish authorities, SOMO Director General Falah Al-Amri said last week. SOMO bases its estimate on what Kurdish production was in 2013 and 2014, he said.

In the north of the country, the Kirkuk and Baba Gurgur fields produced 93,000 barrels a day for the federal North Oil Co., SOMO said. The nearby Bai Hasan and Avana fields pumped 275,000 barrels a day for the NOC.

The BP Plc-operated Rumaila oil field, Iraq’s largest, pumped an average of 1.4 million barrels a day in September, SOMO said. The two fields at West Qurna produced a combined 870,000 barrels a day, while output from Zubair was 390,000; Majnoon, 214,000; and Halfaya, 204,000.

The United Nations has pledged to provide “a unified Sunni political party” to sign the document, and obtaining the approval of Sunni regional countries.

He stressed Ammar al-Hakim, head of the National Alliance, said yesterday, the importance of restoring confidence between the components and the political forces to settle down and according to national “inclusive political project”.

The United Nations Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) has called, last month, Iraqis to engage in a meaningful dialogue leading to the “historic compromise” between the components and sects. He considered that the future of the Iraqi people, “bodes days full of hope.”

MP says Azim and Healing, a member of the Parliamentary Committee of Religious Endowments, said that “the ball is now in the court of the year, and for them to agree on a unified party to sign the document of a comprehensive settlement.”

He says Healing, in connection with the (range) yesterday, “The United Nations will work to reconcile the three groups for the year between inside and outside and the forces that have emerged recently, which resisted Daesh in the occupied cities,” but he stresses that “the most important announcement of the settlement is an agreement on the implementation “.

The implementation mechanism of “settlement”

And reticent Supreme Council, has the most weight in the project “settlement”, the lack of a mechanism to ensure Disclaimer parties on the implementation of the Convention after signing.

In this regard, says Fadi al-Shammari, a consultant for Ammar al-Hakim, “We have a plan on the implementation of safeguards and we have been discussing with the United Nations, but we do not now announce it and we will wait for maturity,” stressing that “the settlement will be voted on in parliament and the government to be an agreement and a contract strategically and nationally among all Iraqi factions.” .

And the most prominent historical document items, illustrates Shammari said “the settlement is a political, social, national, and historical Mtaiha produce an Iraq free of violence and dependency.” The document stresses “the participation of all components of the Iraqi groups in the state administration, without exception.”

The document was based, according to the leader of the Supreme Council, on four pillars: “The commitment of the document is comprehensive and not a unilateral concession, and establishing the principle of (no conqueror but Amglob), and yellowing of the crisis, and rejected violence as a political settlement.”

Baath and murderers exception

The document states the proposed package on the fundamentals of their “commitment to the unity of Iraq, and the democratic system, the rejection of division under any circumstances.” Also emphasizes the need to “abide by the constitution as a reference to the forces of participation and non-participation in the political process.”

Shammari said that “the settlement imposes reconciliation with all Iraqi parties Bastina terrorist forces and the Baath Party.”

The attention of the leadership of the Supreme Council that “the document indicated willingness to amend the constitution and resolve the contentious issues within the Constitution.” The document also stressed the “official recognition of the political process imposed by the election results, and to refrain from duplication attitudes and incitement against the political process.”

The proposed document “also will include a rejection of the dictatorship, and exclusivity, and a commitment to fighting terrorism, and the condemnation of Saddam’s Baath policies, genocide, executions and assassinations, whether clerics or national elites.”
