The West Karoon field shared by Iran and Iraq produces more than 300,000 barrels of oil, Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh said at a meeting with members of the Followers of Wilayat fraction in the Iranian Parliament, Trend reports referring to the website of the Iranian Oil Ministry.
He said that this figure was previously 50,000 barrels.
Zanganeh added that despite this, Iran’s development in this field has exceeded that of Iraq.
The Iranian minister said that Iran’s production on the South Pars gas field, which is shared with Qatar, has doubled. “Iran is ahead of Qatar in terms of daily production,” he noted.
