SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Iraq has started trial operations at the Karbala oil refinery south of the capital Baghdad, the oil ministry said in a statement on Sunday.

The refinery has a production capacity of 140,000 barrels of oil per day, the statement said.

In August, the oil-rich country generated 9.7$ billion from the oil business, a statistic released by the oil ministry said.

Based on statistics achieved by the state organization for marketing oil (SOMO), the total exported crude oil quantities was (101) million, (859) thousand, (528) barrels, with total revenue of (9.784) billion dollars in that month.

Iraq, OPEC’s second-largest producer, oil revenue represents at least 95% of its income.
