A severe budget gap is hampering the United Nations "oil-for-food" programme, which allows Baghdad to use a portion of its crude revenues to purchase humanitarian relief, the UN official in charge of the operation told the Security Council today.
Following months of sluggish oil export levels under the United Nations oil-for-food programme, Iraq's exports were up significantly last week to the tune of 1.9 million barrels per day, totalling 13.3 million barrels. This was the highest single weekly volume of exports registered since the start of the current phase XII of the programme on 30 May 2002. Completed through nine shipments, the week's oil liftings netted an estimated €351 million (euros) or $344 million in revenue, at current prices and rate of exchange.

Exports of Iraqi oil under the United Nations oil-for-food programme bounced back from the previous week's low of 2.6 million barrels to 6.4 million barrels in the week leading to 13 September 2002. Averaging just over 914,000 barrels per day, the exports were completed in five shipments - four from Ceyhan loading terminal with 4.8 million barrels of oil and one shipment from Mina al-Bakr terminal with 1.6 million barrels.

United Kingdom Calls For Return of Inspectors to Iraq; Germany Urges Comprehensive Solution for Middle East Problem
Military intervention would greatly exacerbate the humanitarian crisis in Iraq: pushing a population already suffering from poverty and sanctions over the edge, warned Save the Children UK - the longest-standing non-governmental organisation operating in Northern Iraq - today. The charity urges the British Government to find a diplomatic solution to the current impasse and focus on improving the humanitarian situation for Iraqi citizens, almost half of who are under the age of 14.
Iraqi oil exports trickled to a recent low of 2.6 million barrels over the past week, according to the United Nations office which runs the oil-for-food programme, which allows Baghdad to use a portion of its crude revenues to purchase humanitarian relief.
Iraqi oil exports under the United Nations oil-for-food programme were down to a trickle at 2.6 million barrels in the week that ended on 6 September, with no shipments from Mina al-Bakr terminal for the second consecutive week. The last loading from that terminal was on 21 August. Averaging approximately €25.25 (euros) or $25.10 per barrel and completed in three shipments from Ceyhan terminal, the week's exports netted a mere €70 million or $69 million in estimated revenue, at current prices and rate of exchange.

Commissioner for External Relations
With no loadings from Mina al-Bakr since 23 August 2002, Iraqi oil exports under the United Nations oil-for-food programme averaged 700, 000 barrels per day, thus, reaching a total of 4.9 million barrels during the week ending 30 August. Completed in five loadings, the week's exports yielded an estimated revenue of €125 million (euros) or $ 123 million, at current prices and rate of exchange, bringing the total estimated revenue in current phase XII of the programme to €2.18 billion or $2.1 billion. The average price of Iraqi crude oil was approximately €25.75 or $25.20 per barrel.
With the implementation of the new set of procedures under resolution 1409 (2002) on 15 July 2002, some $106.9 million worth of supplies under 61 contracts previously on hold by the Security Council's 661 sanctions committee, have now been re-assessed as not to contain Goods Review List (GRL) items and, therefore, approved by the Office of the Iraq Programme (OIP). These include a contract for 16 oxygen plants for the production of medical oxygen valued at $58 million, which had been on hold for almost a year because of "military dual use" concerns.
