The report confirms, “European buyers are now avoiding Russian crude oil,” and found that “the flow of oil barrels of that country to the Asian market has exacerbated the export competition from Gulf oil producers such as Iraq and Iran.” Abdul-Jabbar says, “This had a marginal impact on Iraqi crude sales to the region, and the country is looking to adhere to marketing methods or outlets.”

The report continues that “Iraq, which is the second largest oil producer in OPEC, is expanding its oil refineries and enhancing its export capabilities in order to keep pace with the rising demand for fuel and crude oil.”
