Oil minister of Iraq stated that his country’s oil exports should hit a record of about 3.1 million barrels per day in April as output from the country’s southern fields stays strong and weather conditions improve.
In April if nothing disturbs exportations we will hit 3.1 (million barrels per day) Oil Minister Adel Abdel Mehdi told.
Iraq’s oil exports in March averaged 2.98 million bpd, up from less than 2.6 million bpd in February. Baghdad blamed the lower exports on stormy weather. But consumers also said then there were some quality issues with the oil. Mehdi was in Washington with Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi on his first visit to Washington as leader.
Despite the record production, oil export of Iraq is still below the 3.3 million bpd target in Baghdad’s 2015 budget. Iraq hopes its strategy of producing a new stream of heavy Basra oil will boost production and exports, and Mehdi said he already has customers lined up to take the Basra crude.
Mehdi said there are hundreds of Islamic State militants in parts of the country’s largest oil refinery in Baiji since battles with government forces at the plant last week. But he said the government “still controls the main part of the refinery.” Additional government troops are approaching the refinery which represents half of the country’s ability to process crude, but which has been shut since June.
The minister hinted he does not see any indications the OPEC oil production group will cut crude output anytime soon despite burgeoning spare supplies in both the United States and China. The Gulf States such as Saudi Arabia and Kuwait “will have the last say” on whether the group will cut production, he said.
Last November at an OPEC meeting in Vienna, Saudi Arabia forced through an agreement that the group would keep output steady, sending global oil prices lower. The group’s next meeting is in June.

 WELL FOLKS HERE IS MY NEW MANTRA #SHOUT DOWN HOPIUM!

THAT’S RIGHT JUST SHOUT OUT LOUD NO MORE HOPIUM AND EDUCATE YOURSELVES WITH FACTS!

 LOOK THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH SOME EXCITEMENT EVERY NOW AND THEN. BUT HITTING THE HOPIUM PIPE EVERYDAY MUST BE EXHAUSTING ISN’T IT?

 MY ROOM IS IMMUNIZED TO THIS NONSENSE AND THEY HAVE THE FACTS AND THEY ARE NOT OUT HERE BUYING WOLF TICKETS AND YOU FOLKS SHOULDN’T BE EITHER. SO LET’S TAKE A STROLL THROUGH LAST WEEK AND LET’S SEE WHAT WE REALLY HAVE OK?

FOR STARTERS ABADI LEFT IRAQ MONDAY AFTERNOON, AS DID THE FINANCE MINISTER, THE OIL MINISTER, AND THE MINISTER OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGIES, AND LET’S NOT FORGET THE DEFENSE MINISTER. 

THEY ARRIVED IN DC AND HAD A VERY FULL SCHEDULES. THEY HAD MEETINGS ALL TOGETHER AS A GROUP AND MEETINGS SEPARATELY.  THIS WEEK IS THE ANNUAL IMF SPRING MEETINGS FROM THE 14TH TO THE 19TH. HERE IS THE IMF SCHEDULE FOR THE MEETINGS, http://www.imf.org/external/spring/2015/.

AND HERE IS THE LINK TO THE IMF MEETINGS WITH THE WORLD BANK BOTH PREVIOUS AND UPCOMING http://www.imf.org/external/spring/2015/ SO FAR NOTHING REMARKABLE HERE.

 THE FINANCE MINISTER ATTENDED THE CONFERENCE ON MENA, THE DEFENSE MINISTER VISITED WITH HIS USA COUNTER PART, THE MINISTER OF TECHNOLOGIES WAS A PART OF THE CLEAN AIR AND WATER CONFERENCES THE OIL MINISTER SPOKE AT A CONFERENCE ABOUT THE GROWING CONCERNS OF PRICING OF OIL IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND ABADI HAD ANY MANY MEETINGS AND APPEARANCES.

THEY ARE ALL ON THE IMF SITE WHAT EVERYONE WAS DOING ALL WEEK.

ABADI SPOKE ON DAASH AND THE GROWING CONFIDENCE IN IRAQ AND HE DID A GREAT INTERVIEW AT THE CENTER FOR STRATEGIC AND INTERNATIONAL STUDIES TITLED LOOKING FORWARD: A HOLISTIC STRATEGY FOR IRAQ.

THIS IS ABOUT AN HOUR LONG BUT YOU SHOULD WATCH IT IF YOU HAVE TIME THE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS WERE GOOD.
http://csis.org/event/statesmens-forum-iraqi-prime-minister-haider-al-abadi

THIS INTERVIEW WAS DONE ON HIS LAST DAY BEING THURSDAY LIVE AT 11:15 AM EST IN DC. SO ABADI DID NOT RUSH HOME EARLY FOR ANYTHING, HE STAYED HERE FROM MONDAY UNTIL THURSDAY EVENING EXACTLY AS PLANNED.

 MOVING ON TO GRAPHS, CHARTS, AND NEWSPAPERS. LISTEN FOLKS FOR EVER AND EVER THE ENGLISH SIDES OF ANY THING IN IRAQ ARE QUITE DIFFERENT THAN THE ARABIC SIDES. THE ENGLISH SIDE OF THE CBI EVEN HAS A DISCLAIMER ON THE BOTTOM OF IT.

WHILE GRAPHS HAVE THEIR PLACE APPARENTLY IN DINAR LAND ANY GRAPHS OR CHARTS OF IMPORTANCE ARE IN ARABIC AND ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC VIEWING. JUST LOOK AT THE CBI FOR YOURSELF AND PICK ANY TOPIC, CURRENCY AUCTIONS OR ANYTHING AND CLICK AND YOU WILL SEE CHARTS GOING BACK TO 2003 IN ARABIC.

I ASSURE YOU ALL THERE IS NOT A CENTRAL BANK IN THE WORLD THAT WILL PUT OUT SENSITIVE INFORMATION ON CURRENCY OR THE WORKINGS OF THEIR BANK FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD TO SPECULATE ON. IT IS SIMPLY NONSENSE SO PLEASE KEEP YOUR SELF FOCUSED ON THE IMPORTANT THINGS AND DO NOT BUY YET MORE WOLF TICKETS.

WHAT’S NEXT? ALRIGHT THE CHANGE OF CURRENCY RATES IN THE ALMADA PAPER. FOR HEAVENS SAKE WE EXPLAINED THAT LAST YEAR AND IT HAS BEEN THERE LIKE THAT FOR AGES, AGAIN THEY ROUND UP AND THAT IS NOTHING TO GET ALL EXCITED ABOUT.

THAT PAPER CHANGES THE RATES ON ALL THE CURRENCY DAILY AND IT IS NOT SAYING .90 CENTS. YOU NEED ONLY LOOK AT THE LEBANESE POUND TO KNOW THAT.LOL. THE PLACE FOR A RATE CHANGE IS ON THE CBI WEB SITE. THAT IS WHERE YOU WILL SEE IT BUT NOT THE SITE THAT IS UP NOW.

THE NEW SITE WILL BE OPEN WHEN THE RATE CHANGES AND YOU WILL SEE A MOVING CHART OF ALL CURRENCY PAIRS JUST LIKE ON ANY OTHER CBI SITE. AGAIN # SHOUT DOWN HOPIUM! NO WOLF TICKETS FROM HERE PLEASE.

 NEXT UNDER NEWS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR THE CBI THER WERE TO RENDERS BEING OFFERED. NOW WHAT IS A TENDER WELL HERE IT IS IN CONSTRUCTION TENDER MEANS TO SUBMIT A BID

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Construction_bidding

NOW WE HAVE SEEN 2 TENDERS GO OUT 1 WAS 50K DINAR FEE BACK IN MARCH FOR EMAIL SERVERS TO BE INSTALLED

AND ONE NOW FOR 100K DINAR FOR TECH SUPPORT TO THE NEW CBI BUILDING

NEITHER ONE OF THESE THINGS ARE TALKING ABOUT A SALARY AND IN IRAQ A DINAR IS A DINAR AND THAT IS THE AMOUNT 50K DINAR IN IRAQ IS 50K DINAR. THEY ARE NOT CALLING ON AMERICAN COMPANIES TO COME DO THE WORK, NOT EVERYTHING IS COMPARED TO THE INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE RATE TO THE USD FOR HEAVENS SAKE. 100K DINAR IN IRAQ IS 100K DINAR

 THERE IS NO MYSTERY AND IT IS HAS NOTHING TO WITH ANYTHING OTHER THAN WHAT IT SAYS. BUT THE FACT THAT THEY ARE BUILDING A NEW CENTRAL BANK IS SURE A GOOD SIGN TO ME. HERE IS THE REQUEST FOR BIDS

http://www.cbi.iq/documents/Tender-En%20%284-2015%29.pdf

NEXT ARE BOND SALES WE SAW ALL THIS BACK IN THE BEGINNING OF MARCH FROM THE FINANCE MINISTER. THEY SAID AT THAT TIME THEY WERE MEETING WITH CITIBANK AND DUETCHE BANK TO TALK ABOUT THEM BROKERING THE SALE IN USD.

HERE ARE A FEW LINKS I STILL HAVE FROM IT AND THE REST YOU CAN LOOK UP HERE I DID AN ENTIRE POST ON IT AND RECAPS POSTED IT. SO THE BONDS ARE BEING SOLD IN USD TO PAY INSTALLMENTS TO THE OIL COMPANIES IN KURDISTAN AND OWED FROM THE LAST QUARTER OF 2013 AND ALL OF 2014. THEY ARE  BEING SOLD IN DOLLARS SINCE THE CONTRACTS ARE IN DOLLARS. 

THIS IS NOT REALLY REMARKABLE. THEY ARE JUST NOW GETTING TO IT, BUT THE PAYMENT WAS DUE FOR APRIL 1 ORIGINALLY.

LISTEN IT IS EASY TO GET YOUR FACTS AND NOT HAVE TO GET ON THE HOPIUM PIPE. JUST LOOK TO A FEW PLACES AND YOU WILL KNOW RIGHT AWAY WHAT IS HAPPENING.

FOR INSTANCE HERE YOU GO. WHEN YOU HEAR OF MAJOR MOVES BY GOI GO TO PARLIAMENT. REMEMBER WE SAW THE BUDGET UNDER LEGISLATION COMPLETED ON PARLIAMENT ABOUT 3 WEEKS BEFORE IT HIT THE GAZETTE.

GO TO THE CBI AND CHECK IF YOU ARE NOT REDIRECTED TO THE NEW SITE WITH ACTIVE TRADING CURRENCY PAIRS, THEN IT DID NOT CHANGE! SIMPLE!

OR ANOTHER WAY TO CHECK FOR SURE GO TO YOUR FAVORITE DINAR DEALER IF YOU CAN STILL BUY DINAR AT THE OLD RATE IT DID NOT CHANGE!!!

SO IS THERE ANYTHING TO BE EXCITED ABOUT AT ALL?

WE HAVE KEPT QUIET OUT HERE IN DINAR LAND ALL WEEK BECAUSE THE BUZZ WAS VERY LOUD. OUR ROOM HAS BEEN UPBEAT AND POSITIVE AND FULL OF FACTS THROUGH ALL THE CRAZY OUT HERE.

NOW I WANT EVERYONE TO CONSIDER SOMETHING PLEASE.

IF YOU WERE GOING TO TELL SOMETHING THAT WAS FABRICATED FROM THIN AIR WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO TRY TO DISCOURAGE SOMEONE FROM CHECKING OUT YOUR STORY?

HUMMM YOU MIGHT SAY WELL ALL THE NEWS FROM THAT AREA IS INCORRECT ANYWAY, OR MIGHT SAY THAT YOU ARE UNDER STRICT CONFIDENTIAL AGREEMENTS SO YOU CAN NOT REVEAL YOUR SOURCE. OR YOU MIGHT TRY TO DISCOURAGE RESEARCH BY SAYING EVERYTHING IS DONE IN SECRET AND WHAT WE ARE BEING SHOWN IS JUST SMOKE AND MIRRORS.

TO ALL THAT I SAY WOLF TICKETS…DON’T BUY THEM. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE FLUENT IN ARABIC TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON.

DOWNLOAD CHROME AND DROP WEBSITES IN IT AND POOF YOU CAN TRANSLATE AN ENTIRE NEWSPAPER NO MATTER WHAT LANGUAGE IT IS PRINTED IN. THIS IS WHERE YOU GET ENOUGH FACTS TO BE ABLE TO TELL WHEN YOU ARE BEING FED HOPIUM.   # SHOUT DOWN HOPIUM!

IRAQ IS FOLLOWING THE ARTICLE 4 IMF RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE LETTER. WHAT ARE THOSE YOU CAN FIND THEM ON THE IMF WEBSITE UNDER IRAQ.

LOOK EVERYONE YOU CAN CHASE YOUR TAIL AND RUN IN CIRCLES FROM PLACE TO PLACE BUYING NONSENSE. OR YOU CAN EXHALE, AND JUST WAIT FOR IT TO COME TO YOU.

THE DATE IS NOT IN A SPREAD SHEET, IT IS NOT IN A NEWS ARTICLE AND IT IS NOT BEING TALKED ABOUT WITH ANYONE IN THE WORLD LET ALONE DINAR LAND GURUS.

WE DO NOT KNOW WHEN THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT AS NOVA AND I HAVE SAID OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. THERE ARE A HANDFUL OF ABSOLUTES IN THIS PASSIVE INVESTMENT AND SO FAR IRAQ HAS NOT BROKEN ANY OF THEM.

SO WE MAINTAIN A HIGH LEVEL OF EXPECTATION BUT WE WILL ALWAYS SHOUT DOWN HOPIUM! WE DON’T NEED IT THE ABSOLUTES ARE ENOUGH!

HOLD ON A BIT LONGER, DON’T LOSE CONFIDENCE DO NOT GIVE YOUR DINAR AWAY TO ANYONE. DO NOT GIVE UP PERSONAL INFO TO ANYONE EVER AND JUST BREATHE PLEASE. IT IS ALL COMING TOGETHER! 

A SPECIAL THANKS TO THOSE THAT HELPED WITH THIS AND TO THE PEOPLE OF MY ROOM THAT REALLY PITCHED IN THIS WEEK WHILE I WAS DOING OTHER THINGS.

At Global Economic Gathering, U.S. Primacy Is Seen as Ebbing

WASHINGTON — As world leaders converge here for their semiannual trek to the capital of what is still the world’s most powerful economy, concern is rising in many quarters that the United States is retreating from global economic leadership just when it is needed most.

Baghdad (AIN) –The Iraqi Parliament announced on Saturday not to approve the new decision of electricity bill price endorsed by the Council of Ministers.

tman23 Article quote: “the oil agreement between the federal government and the Kurdistan region became law and published in the Iraqi Gazette on according to the Iraqi constitution,” The HCL was contingent on a census and to the demarcation of borders in which Kirkut became the focal point…an oil rich territory that was once under Kurd rule and taken by Saddam… So Maliki argued Kirkut was not part of Kurdistan….. Under Abadi…he told the Ministers and Governor of Kirkut that the GOI is now recognizing Kirkut as a subsidiary of Kurdistan… A quick fix IMO to get an agreement into law…The HCL has many details but as far as I’m concerned…the oil agreement between Kurdistan and Iraq was always referred to as the HCL and that agreement now is law in the Gazzette and meeting the CONSTITUTION…IT IS LAW!
