The bar chart illustrates the amount of oil in six nations, namely Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Kuwait from 1990 to 2010.
Overall, it can be seen that Saudi Arabia was the country that produced the highest oil. The oil production in Qatar remained relatively stable.
In 1990, the amount of oil in Saudi Arabia and Qatar were around 8 and nearly 2 millions of barrels respectively. Twenty years later, the oil production of Saudi Arabia reached a peak of nearly 16 millions barrels. From 2005 to 2010, Qatar produced just only 2 millions oil on a daily basis after increasing to 1.5 in 2000.
Iran produced 3 millions of barrels every day in 1990, followed by Kuwait and Iraq produced about 2 million of barrels in the same year. The amount of oil production in Iran increased slightly, reaching 4 millions oil in 2005 and 2010. Oil production in Iraq, Kuwait, and UAE was as the same nearly 4 millions of barrels in 2010.
