Iraq's oil exports rose in February to an average 2.597 million barrels per day (bpd) from 2.535 million bpd in the previous month, the oil ministry said in a statement on Sunday.

Exports from Iraq's southern terminals reached 2.293 million bpd, while exports from the north via the Kurdistan pipeline were 304,000 bpd in February, the ministry said.

Export volumes from the south were hit by bad weather which delayed shipments for several days, the statement said. But the slight fall in southern exports was offset by a doubling of shipments through the north.

February shipments generated $3.449 billion in revenue. Iraq sold its crude for $47.43 per barrel.
