Let’s analyze now the countries who are exporting petrol.

As we all know, some countries in the world are producing and selling petrol, they are mostly influent and dominating some sectors.

The main countries producing petrol are part of the OPEC.

The OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) is an organization of countries exporting and producing petrol. The OPEC was founded in 1960 in Baghdad by the first five members, which are Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.

Nowadays we count 14 countries in this organization, with the entry of Algeria, Angola, Ecuador, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

 Those 14 countries accounted represent 44% of the global oil production and 73% of the world’s “proven” oil reserves, which give to the OPEC a major influence on global oil prices and a wall against the others petrol firms of the world.

The biggest producer in the world of petrol is Saudi Arabia, with more than 11 million barrel per day, that is why it was interesting to see who is controlling this in Saudi Arabia.
