OPEC said Iraq, the United Arab Emirates and Kazakhstan, who have lagged in their implementation of a deal to cut production, affirmed their commitment to the accord at a meeting in Abu Dhabi.Iraq and the UAE said at the meeting that OPEC's estimates of their production – based on data from external sources – were at fault for any apparent failures to comply, according to two people familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified because the discussion was confidential.Iraqi compliance slumped to 29 percent in June, its lowest so far, while the UAE made just 60 percent of its cuts, according to data from the International Energy Agency. Iraq has complained that the estimates OPEC uses to monitor compliance are inaccurate, and that it has actually made the full reduction required.
