Iraq's oil exports climb to 888,000 bpd

Baghdad, February 4, 2012

Oil exports from Iraq's southern Basra terminals climbed to 888,000 barrels per day (bpd) on Saturday after bad weather reduced exports on Friday, a shipping source said.

'High winds around Basra ports are still preventing ships from docking,' said the source, who asked not to be named.

Winds cut crude exports to 480,000 bpd on Friday from an average of 1.728 million bpd at the offshore export terminals on Thursday. Exports from Basra, Iraq's main oil hub, tend to fluctuate because of weather or technical problems.-Reuters
