Iran’s current oil output hits 3.6 million bpd: Minister

TEHRAN, Jul. 10 (MNA) – Iran’s minister of oil put the current production of oil in the country at 3.6 million barrels per day (bpd).

Stating that each 100,000 barrels of oil generates $2.8 billion income for the country, Javad Owji noted that oil production volume has reached from 2.2 million to 3.6 million barrels per day (bpd), showing a considerable hike.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, he pointed out that the oil production volume has considerably increased during the administration of the late President Raeisi, which assumed office in August 2021. 

The production of oil is one of the strategies to prevent the budget deficit and increase the government’s revenues, Owji said, and put the liquid hydrocarbon reserves in the country at more than 153 billion barrels.

The more oil production volume is increased, the government’s revenues will also increase simultaneously, he underlined.

Back on July 02, Iran's minister of oil said that the oil sector of the country witnessed significant growth over the first three months of this year in the Iranian calendar (March 21 to June 22, 2024).

The Economic Coordination Headquarters held a meeting presided over by the acting president Mohammad Mokhber, where the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) and the Planning and Budget Organization (PBO) provided reports about inflation and economic growth, the oil minister Javad Owji added.
