Filling the Punch Bowl With Iraqi Oil

•, By Staff Report

Al Shahristani said on Tuesday that Iraq plans to boost its capacity to produce oil to 9m barrels a day (bpd) by the end of the decade as Baghdad rushes to bolster its economy, which is still shattered by war and internal conflict. – UK Telegraph
