TEHRAN, November 28. Iran plans to produce 4 to 7 million barrels of oil per day by 2020. This is stated in the presentation, presented to international investors at the conference on new contracts in the oil and gas industry, held in Tehran.

Prior to the introduction of sanctions against Teheran for developing a nuclear program, oil production in Iran amounted to about 4 million barrels per day. In this case, the export was about 2.5 million barrels.
