While the media are focused on the security in Baghdad they keep
ignoring what is happening with the oil production in Iraq.
Well, everything is great, and as a result the gas-prices keep dropping
at the pump. Just in time for the upcoming elections.

Terwijl de media zich blindstaren op het geweld in Bagdad en omstreken
is heerst er een oorverdovende stilte wat betreft de olie productie in Irak.
Welnu: het gaat buitengewoon voorspoedig: voormalig Halliburton
CEO Dick Cheney kan dik tevreden zijn

<q> Security and confidence in Iraq may be deteriorating but one aspect
of the country is nearly returning to prewar levels  oil production. As
violence rages in many places, the number one cash earner for the
war-torn nation pumps on. Oil Minister Hussain al-Shahristani, on a
visit to Tokyo, says daily output has hit 2.4 million barrels, just
below levels in March 2003. </q>

<q>Iraq expects its daily oil production to reach 2.6 million to 2.7
million barrels per day (bpd) by the end of the year, rising to about 4
million bpd by 2010, and 6 million bpd by 2012, Hussain al-Shahristani
said in an interview on CNN's "Late Edition."
The country's ultimate aim is to rival Saudi Arabia, the world's largest
oil exporter, in oil production and exports and to establish that it
holds the largest proven oil and gas reserves in the world, he said.</q>

<q>The Iraqi oil minister said Iraq is now exporting about 2.5 million
barrels a day, and hopes to increase that to 3 million by year's end and
to 4 million to 4.5 million barrels by 2010.
``We are determined to go beyond that to 6 million barrels by
cooperating with foreign companies,'' he told a news conference.
He said the oil sector, which accounts for about 70 percent of Iraq's
GDP and 90 percent of its national income, will get a boost by a new
hydrocarbon law expected by the end of the year that will provide
further guarantees for foreign investors.</q>

<q> Iraq will increase its oil production to 3.5 million barrels a day
by next year, with the capacity to export 2.4 million barrels a day,
al-Shahristani said. The increased oil output will not be curtailed by
the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, or OPEC, because Iraq
has been producing less than its quota for many years, he said.
``Our friends at OPEC understand Iraq needs to produce more oil
quickly,'' he said. ``The general position is to allow Iraq to produce
as much oil as quickly as possible.''  </q>
