The Qayarah oil field is continuing its resurgence, trucking its increasing production to both a nearby refinery and 960 kilometers south to the Khor al-Zubair port for export. Although the field is struggling to load enough tanker trucks to operate at its full 30,000 barrels per day (bpd) capacity, and is only a fraction of the country’s 4.867 million bpd production , its revival after being ravaged by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS) militant group is itself an achievement by the Oil Ministry.
