Iraqi oil expert Hamza Al-Jawahiri commented today, Wednesday, on the possibility of Iraq moving Iraq towards disengaging from OPEC and exporting oil to its full export potential.

Al-Jawahiri told "Baghdad Today", "It is not in the interest of Iraq, to ​​disengage from its association with OPEC and to export its oil independently of it, with the aim of this organization to stabilize global oil prices. If Iraq leaves, there are other countries that will go out with it."

He stated that "Iraq's taking such a step will seriously harm its economy, in the short and long term, and for this Iraq will not make or think of such a step," stressing that "the moment Iraq leaves OPEC, the global oil price will drop more than 10 dollars." And Iraq will be the biggest losers. "

Al-Yasiri added that "in the event that Iraq requests exemption from the decision to reduce production, this means a breach in the studies prepared in order to create a balance in the global oil market and not achieve the desired goal in the stability of the barrel price, which requires compensation for the shortfall from other countries, and this cannot happen." Indicating that "the organization discussed the reduction issue with the participating countries to reach the equilibrium stage, and divided the reduction rates among those countries."

The SOMO director pointed out that "oil prices decreased during the fourth month and reached 9-11 dollars per barrel due to the Corona pandemic, which caused great harm to exporters, which required the intervention of OPEC and countries outside it to agree to reduce production in order to raise prices and control the global market," stressing that " Iraq is with the agreement and the first stages have been crossed, which is the period of highest commitment and the reduction was by 23% in the past months, and now the percentage is lower .. the fact that prices have begun to recover and the price has become satisfactory to all exporting countries.

To hand over this percentage, this is subject to other agreements with the Ministry of Finance.
