Iraq has increased its domestic production of gas oil and gasoline in 2019, the Oil Ministry said in a statement.
The current rate of gasoline production is 14.29 million liters per day, up from an average of 11.485 million liters in 2018.
Gas oil production rose to 11.23 million liters per day from 7.84 million liters in 2018.
The statement said the increase was largely due to steps to increase the production of Iraqi refineries, some of which were rebuilt after being destroyed by armed factions.
Iraq uses most of the fuel it produces for domestic consumption, the statement said.
