BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq’s total oil exports for April averaged 3.438 million barrels per day (bpd) and oil revenue more than halved to $1.42 billion, a statement from the oil ministry said on Friday.
The average price per barrel of oil in April was $13.8.
Iraq’s revenue from oil, its main source of income, had already reduced in March to $2.98 billion.
OPEC’s second-largest producer of crude faces an economic crisis over falling oil prices and an agreement to cut production by more than 1 million bpd, effective this month.
