Shafaq News / The Parliamentary Finance Committee revealed a parliamentary move to change the oil barrel's price in the Iraqi state budget bill in 2021.
A member of the committee, Shirwan Mirza, told Shafaq News agency, "The price of a barrel of oil specified in the budget law draft is $ 42 and has not changed yet. At the same time, global prices exceed $ 55 per barrel of oil."

According to the draft, the budget estimated the price of a barrel of oil on the basis of the price of 42 dollars a barrel and an export rate of 3 million and 250 thousand barrels per day, including 250 thousand barrels produced in the Kurdistan region.
