As Iraqi production reportedly tops 3 mbd.
Exploration in northern Iraq has been held back in part by disputes between the central government and the autonomous Kurdish region over control of fields in Kurdish provinces.
The central government says it alone has the right to export Iraqi oil, and adds that deals signed by foreign firms with the Kurdish regional authorities, such as one announced by ExxonMobil, are illegal.
Luaibi repeated earlier remarks by Iraqi officials that an announcement on the Exxon deal would be made soon.
Luaibi said Iraq’s central authorities had received only 65,000 bpd of oil – less than half the 175,000 bpd they had expected – from the Kurdish region since the start of the year.
The central authorities say they suspect that missing Kurdish oil is being illegally exported abroad

That’s what oil exporters do! Yup, we’re going to frack our production up about 200% over its current level, and get more efficient of course, and, of course, “do it right,” and then we’ll start exporting crude to those suckers in Japan and Europe. But first –
But all of this depends on an understanding between the oil industry and the environmentalists. If President Obama could pull that off, it would be a huge contribution to America’s security, economy and environment.
Yeah, that’s it. If we can just come to an understanding with the environmentalists, it’s OPEC time!
Friedman is unbelievably bad sometimes. Other times, believably so.

Who to believe… Who to believe.
Iran’s oil ministry, National Iranian Oil Co (NIOC) will sell 240,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil to China’s state oil trader Zhuhai Zhenrong in 2012, the same volume as last year, but volumes sold to Unipec, the trading arm of China’s top refiner Sinopec Corp, will be reduced.
Under the 2011 contract, Unipec lifted 260,000 bpd day of crude from Iran.

China is the main beneficiary of US sanctions against Iran, securing more supply at lower prices.
Iran’s deputy oil minister headed a delegation to China this week to negotiate a new crude supply contract and other joint projects in oil, gas and petrochemicals with Beijing.
The new agreement comes following those negotiations and is expected to increase Iran’s oil shipments to China to above 500,000 barrels a day in 2012.

If the EU stops buying oil from Iran, that would seem to benefit China, Turkey and Japan.
