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.

Iraq was moving closer to the “historic compromise” between the three components of the President, it is the first of its kind since 2003. The United Nations provides an umbrella for this settlement, through its commitment to the protection of the agreement “societal political-“, and punish any internal party or external try to block his announcement.

And it will adopt the (settlement) on the earlier document for peace Ahli had been issued by the Supreme Council leader Ammar al-Hakim last year. But the new agreement has been approved by all the Shiite parties, including the Sadrists, who is boycotting the meetings of the National Alliance.

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.”

Book “close settlement”

He revealed Fadi al-Shammari, a leader of the Supreme Council, said that “the National Alliance, an initiative of the National Settlement” approved within the leadership and political alliance, was also presented during the meeting of the “public body”.

He said al-Shammari, in an extended remarks (range) yesterday, said that “the coalition has formed a committee headed by MP Ibrahim to put items and paragraphs initiative Science,” noting that “the initiative was based on a document civil peace presented by the Supreme Council for the past year.”

The Supreme Council has launched, during the past years, several initiatives on “political reform” and restore social peace and security in the western regions before the advent of Daesh. And prevented political differences without taking these initiatives.

But the leader of the Supreme Council, confirms that the United Nations will be the guarantor party this time, through the compilation of proposals all Iraqi parties for the drafting of a final paper based on the protection and implementation.

Shammari asserts that “the UN has vowed to deal with any party or threatens to hamper the implementation, also pledged international Balthacad in favor of the initiative.”

Uniting the Sunni position

And reveals the leading figure in the Supreme Council for the United Nations dialogues fought with outside parties have extensions within Iraq, such as Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, GCC, Arab and other countries.

And stalking Shiite parties concerned by the lack of a clear representative of the Sunni Arabs in Iraq, which the United Nations has pledged to work to easily overcome, according to a Sunni lawmaker.

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.”

The document also includes “confess to a crime draining of the marshes, the mass graves, forced displacement of the Kurds and Shiites, the rejection of demographic change even conducted by the previous regime, along with the consolidation of state institutions and the preservation of democracy and civil order, and the adoption of a free multimeter, and a commitment to the equitable distribution of wealth according to the ratio of the population of the provinces economy .

The settlement would require the parties to refrain from the “atonement and distrust the other,” and the adoption of tolerance, coexistence and acceptance of others and the emphasis on “national identity”.

Prevent militias

Fayed al-Shammari and indicates that the document will emphasize the “bear arms, however, the state, and not to allow the existence of any (militia) outside the state, and a commitment by all signatories to the document to fight against any armed group is illegal.” The document also included a reference to the need for “the adoption of laws relating to the security forces, military service and other support to the peace and privacy of Ahli maintain sects and religions.”

And confirms the leadership of the Supreme Council and a coalition of citizen that “the National Alliance does not mind the resolution of the Justice and Accountability file and convert it to the judiciary.” The document stresses the proposed peace on the “sanctity of Iraqi blood and respect for beliefs, and commitment to Iraq the principle of impartiality and balance in its relations with the countries of the world.”
