Iraq is the fifth largest oil producer in the world
The American World Review website said in a report seen by Shafaq News Agency, "Iraq ranked fifth as the largest oil producer in the world, at a rate of 4.260 million barrels per day, after both: the United States, which came first at a rate of 11.567 million barrels per day, and Russia came second at a rate of 10.503 million barrels per day." And then Saudi Arabia came third at a rate of 10.225 million barrels per day, and Canada came fourth at a rate of 4.665 million barrels per day.
And she continued, "China came sixth at a rate of 3.969 million barrels per day, then the UAE came seventh at a rate of 2.954 million barrels per day, then Brazil came eighth at a rate of 2.852 million barrels per day, and Kuwait came ninth at a rate of 2.610 million barrels per day, and in the tenth place came Iran at a rate of 2.546 million barrels per day.”
She pointed out that "the United States surpassed Russia and Saudi Arabia in its oil production in 2018, despite the presence of many countries that have large oil reserves, but despite the fact that the United States of America is the largest producer in the world, it is also the largest consumer of oil in the world and imports additional oil from several countries, including Iraq.
