Mohsen praised the “OPEC +” decision to reduce production by two million barrels per day, considering that it “had an important role in stabilizing global markets, and the reduction included all countries at varying rates and according to the amount of their production.”

 

He explained that the decision “did not reduce Iraq’s oil exports, but rather reduced domestic production and invested in rising prices by stabilizing the export rate, a strategy that succeeded in achieving high financial revenues.”

 

He added, “OPEC Plus produces 43 million barrels per day, and the percentage of what Iraq produces is 11% of it, and therefore it is the same percentage of reduction by the decision to reduce production by two million barrels.”

 

And he pointed out that any “future decision regarding maintaining the current reduction, adding a new reduction, or increasing the quantities produced will take into account the market situation and aim to create balance,” pointing to “a meeting of the OPEC Plus group on December 3 and 4, which will study the current situation and issue balanced decisions.”
