OPEC production estimates
December 16, 2015 - OPEC monitors its own crude production using so-called secondary sources, including the media. Platts publishes monthly estimates of OPEC production, based on a survey of OPEC and oil industry officials, on a country-by-country basis.
OPEC sets a production target for twelve of its 13 members. Iraq, which is struggling to rebuild its oil industry after years of UN sanctions and a war led by the US, does not have a production quota.
All figures are in millions of barrels per day.
* The estimate for Iraq includes volumes exported by Kurdistan under the agreement between Baghdad and Erbil to deliver 250,000 b/d of Kurdish exports on behalf of Iraqi state oil marketer SOMO at Ceyhan.
OPEC's 30 million b/d ceiling has been in place since January 2012. It does not include individual country quotas.
