Radical OPEC Members Cheat the Most

The most most radical members of OPEC are cheating on quotas.

Brothers Hahmoud and Hugo.
MEMRI Blog reported:

OPEC boosted production last month by about 1 million barrels a day for a total of 25.812 million b/d, in violation of supply cuts approved by the cartel to stem falling prices.

Iran, Angola, and Venezuela exceeded their quotas most. Iran pumped 3.75 million b/d last month, more than 400,000 b/d above its official ceiling of 3.336 million b/d. Venezuela exceeded its official ceiling by about 165,000 b/d.

[In other words, the two most radical members of OPEC that often call for production cuts account for 58% of the excess production.]
