Iran’s crude oil output has surpassed 3.9 million barrels per day in June for the first time after removal of international sanctions against the Islamic Republic in 2016, Mohammad Bagher Nobakht, the Iranian government spokesman said.
He added that the country’s gas condensate (an ultra-light crude) output also reached 692,000 barrels per day, IRNA news agency reported July 4.
