He said in a press statement that the Kingdom imported roughly 3 million barrels of Iraqi crude from September 2021 to October 2022, by 11,565 Jordanian and Iraqi tankers.

Under a signed agreement, Jordan imports 10,000 barrels per day of crude from the Kirkuk oil fields, in northern Iraq, which accounts for approximately 7 percent of its market’s daily demand.

Iraq sells crude oil to the Kingdom at a discount rate of $16 per barrel, from the average price of Brent crude, to account for transport costs, inspection fees, and quality differences.
