Økningen flater ut

Irak har økt oljeproduksjonen til nesten fire mill. fat per dag i løpet av åtte år. Om bare fire-fem år vil den være mer enn fem mill. fat per dag.

Rystad Energy analysis shows that Iraqi crude oil production for 2015 was approximately 3.9 million barrels per day, up by 12% from 2014.
The 2016 production level is expected to exhibit similar growth as in 2015.
From 2017, the growth rate will slow down to an average year-on-year increase of 4%, predominantly as the first phase of the redevelopment of mature oil fields has now been completed.
