Federal Iraqi crude exports rose by almost 70,000 barrels per day to hit 2.996 million b/d in July, according to Energy Intelligence data. Iraqi state marketer Somo had been targeting exports of 3.05 million b/d, while Baghdad’s own figures put federal exports at just 2.918 million b/d. “It is very disappointing. We couldn’t achieve our target. We have lost around 130,000 b/d [from the target],” a senior Iraqi oil official told Energy Intelligence.
