Iraq oil output rose to 4.23 mln bpd in December, SOMO says

LONDON, Jan 6 (Reuters) - Iraq produced 4.23 million barrels per day (bpd) of oil in December, up by 17,000 bpd from November, according to production data from state-owned marketer SOMO seen by Reuters on Thursday.

The production figure includes output from Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, which produced 406,000 bpd last month, the data showed.

Under the OPEC+ agreement, Iraq's crude production ceiling was 4.24 mln bpd for December.

This places Iraqi compliance under the deal at 102% last month, SOMO's figures show.

OPEC+, a grouping of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies led by Russia, uses an average of secondary source production figures to determine compliance levels for each member country.
