Iraq's oil production will hit 4.580 million bpd as of July, ministry spokesperson says
June 3 (Reuters) - Iraq's oil output will reach 4.580 million barrels per day as of July following an OPEC+ decision to increase production, an Iraqi Oil Ministry spokesperson said on Friday, according to the state news agency.
"Production increase will be at a rate of 70,000 bpd," spokesman Aasem Jehad said, noting that the OPEC+ decision concerns production not exports.
OPEC+ said on Thursday it had agreed to boost output by 648,000 bpd in July - or 0.7% of global demand - and a similar amount in August versus the initial plan to add 432,000 bpd a month over three months until September.
