Iraq's August oil exports averaged 3.216 mln bpd - oil ministry


Iraq’s oil exports slipped to 3.216 million barrels per day in August from 3.230 million bpd in July as no shipments were made from the northern Kirkuk field, the oil ministry said on Saturday.

All the volumes shipped in August came from the southern fields, it said in a statement. Kirkuk is the only field supervised by the government in the north.
