Hi, this is the first time I use this site. Can you help me to find my mistakes in this writing please. That will be very kind of you. Thank you so muchhhhhh!!!

oil production capacity

The table below shows the estimated oil capacity of six countries, in millions of barrels per day, from 1990 to 2010.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
Write at least 150 Words.

The presented bar chart illustrates the estimated oil production capacity in six different Gulf countries namely Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and UAE, in four years 1990, 2000, 2005, 2010, measured in million barrels per day. Overall, the oil production of most countries tends to increase from 1990 to 2010, except for Qatar. It is crystal clear that Saudi Arabia produced the largest amount of oil throughout this period whilst that of Qatar was the least.

In 1990, Saudi Arabia produced a significant quantity of over 8 millions barrels of petroleum daily, which is about four times higher than that of the rest . This continued to rise steadily and reached its peak at a little higher than 14 millions of barrels per day in 2010. In contrast, the lowest oil producing country was Qatar. It produced under 1 million barrels per day in all given years. However, there had been a marginal increase in 2000.

As for the four remaining countries, their oil generating capability was approximately between two and four millions of barrels per day throughout the decades. Over time, the production capacity gradually improved and reached around 4 millions of barrels per day in 2010. Iran's capability was slightly higher than that of Iraq, Kuwait and UAE.

You should be writing only 175-190 words for this essay. Writing over 200 words brings you nearer to the Task 2 writing guidelines and time limitation. I am worried you will not be able to write and revise this many words within 20 minutes. You have to leave at least 5 minutes for the editing of your draft prior to submission. Please remember that next time and try to stay within a short, rather than long presentation instead.

Excellent work on the summary overview. You have given enough and correct information for the reader to be able to develop a mental picture of the original image. That is the aim of the summary overview and you delivered it without question.

The overall presentation delivers a good mix of simple and complex sentences. The punctuation mark usage is correct throughout and the comparison points are on point. This is basically one of the better developed presentations of this task that I have seen at this forum. However, you should not pat yourself on the back just yet. You still need to learn to present the information in a succinct manner. That will help you present an even easier to read, understand, and remember presentation that will not cut into the Task 2 writing time or go overboard with the word count.
