Fundamentals: Iraq reclaimed top spot from Saudi Arabia in terms of crude oil exports to India for the third time this year in September as sales bounced 36% on the month and comes despite a 7.4% fall in overall Indian oil imports during the same period. Foreign sales of Iran’s crude and condensate fell to a seven-month low of 1.07 mbpd in October which was down 13% compared with September. Staying with Iran, an oil official has claimed that oil production capacity from its southern oil fields has increased by 150,000 bpd after three desalination plants became operational. Meanwhile, Saudi’s 400,000 bpd Yasref refinery is said to be operating at full capacity after having run at about 75% in September owing to lower margins and maintenance work.
