… Iran is exporting nearly 1.5 million barrels per day in total, with nearly 1.4 million of those going to Beijing. From June to July, oil exports to China rose by about 300,000 barrels per day, according to statistics published Tuesday by United Against a Nuclear Iran, a watchdog group that tracks Tehran's illicit oil tankers. "It is China's unwavering demand for Iranian crude that remains the key constant and critical lifeline for Iran’s oil exports," the group said.
