Iran is exaggerating its crude oil export figures and won't be allowed to sell more than 1 million barrels a day over the next six months, said U.S. officials involved in managing sanctions against the country.Iran says it shipped 1.51 million barrels a day in November, according to figures the nation submitted to the Riyadh-based Joint Organizations Data Initiative. The Obama administration said after the Nov. 24 accord was struck that Iran's exports had been forced down to 1 million barrels a day, a reduction of more than half from 2.5 million a day before U.S. and European Union sanctions were imposed, and won't be allowed to increase before a final nuclear deal is reached and all sanctions are lifted.Iran hasn't challenged the 1 million barrel-a-day figure in meetings with American negotiators, one of the U.S. officials said Jan. 22 .De Margerie said on Jan. 22 he sees potential for the French oil producer to return to Iran if the sanctions are lifted.That compares with 3.22 million reported directly by Iran to OPEC, the same report showed.
