Our oil production amounts to 100,000 barrels a day, 20,000 of which are processed in the country’s refineries, while about 80,000 are stolen by the occupation troops and their separatist militia FDS, the official said on national television.

He recalled that, in 2010, the year before the war began, Syria produced about 400 thousand barrels of oil, of which it refined 250 thousand and 150 thousand barrels were exported.

We currently depend on imports to guarantee hydrocarbon needs, and despite the blockade and enormous difficulties, there has been stability in the supply of petroleum derivatives for two months, Khattab said.

He revealed that the distribution of hydrocarbons is managed electronically through magnetic cards, and the amount delivered depends on availability.

Bakeries, hospitals and plants and productive institutions of the public sector are prioritized, he clarified.

According to reports from Damascus, Washington intensified its economic war against Syria by occupying 90 percent of the oil-producing areas in the country and imposing the so-called Caesar Law that imposes sanctions on any third-country’s company that deals with Damascus.
