Iraqi Oil Minister Thamir Ghadhban said on Tuesday that oil shortages caused by new US sanctions against Iran had not been measured before next month's OPEC meeting.
Ghadhban said Iraq wanted to know the "real decline" before Baghdad and other members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries decided how to deal with the decline in Iranian shipments.
"I want to wait to see how much Iran's exports have actually dropped, and whether it will be compensated, through OPEC producers and other countries too," the minister told Reuters in his first interview since taking office last month. "He said.
"How is the demand for Iraqi oil increasing on the market today? If there is no request, how can I say we will make up?"
Ghadban did not mention the oil price he expected for 2019 but said prices above $ 70 per barrel would be "fair" and that the higher the price, the better for Iraq.
