TEHRAN, June 8 (Reuters) - Iran plans to export at least 2.5 million barrels of oil per day (bpd) in June, the country’s OPEC governor was quoted as saying on Sunday.
“On the basis of this programme (Iran’s crude export programme) Iran will be exporting at least 2.5 million bpd oil in June,” Mohammad Ali Khatibi was quoted as saying by the Oil Ministry’s Web site Shana.
Another Iranian official last month said Iran’s oil exports fell by about 200,000 barrels per day in the Iranian month that ended on May 20 but the reduction was anticipated and due to seasonal factors. (Reporting by Hashem Kalantari; Writing by Fredrik Dahl; Editing by David Cowell)
