All data below is based on the latest OPEC Monthly Oil Market Report.

All data is through August 2017 and is in thousand barrels per day.

The above chart does not include the 14th member of OPEC that was just added, Equatorial Guinea. I do not have historical data for Equatorial Guinea so I may not add them at all. OPEC production has held steady for the past three months. Their production was down 79,000 barrels per day in August but that is not a big drop when production is over 32.5 million barrels per day.

August production was down 79,100 barrels per day.

Iraq is holding steady since their December peak.

Kuwait is down 165,000 bpd from their November peak. That is about 5.75 percent.

Nigerian oil production jumped 138,000 bpd in August. I am doubting they can hold at this level however.

Qatar has been holding steady for the last six months. But I expect their decline to continue soon.

Saudi production was down 10,000 bpd in August. That was hardly noticeable for them.

Nothing much is happening in the UAE lately.

Russia is not an OPEC member but as the world’s largest oil producer their production is extremely important. Russian production was down 39,000 bpd in August and it is down 318,000 barrels per day since peaking in October 2016.
