Bad weather cuts Iraq Basra oil exports to 1.75m bpd, says shipper
Only 1.75 million barrels were exported on Saturday compared to 2.5 million barrels exported on Friday
Bad weather trimmed oil shipments from Iraq’s southern Basra terminals on Saturday, with only 1.75 million barrels being exported compared with 2.5 million the previous day, a shipping source said.
“High winds around the Basra oil ports made it difficult for ships to reach the ports. Berth and unberth operations were suspended,” the shipping source said.
Iraq exports the bulk of its crude from southern ports on the Gulf.
