"Oil exports through the two pipelines are back to normal since Saturday night to the two terminals at Basra and Khor Al Amaya," the official said. "The average output has reached 85,000 barrels an hour." For 13 days, exports were down to between 36,000 and 42,000 barrels a day due to threats by Shia militia to blow up oil pipelines.
