Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) countries supplied about 30 million barrels per day (mmb/d) of liquid fuels in 2010, or more than one-third (see chart) of the estimated total worldwide daily supply of 86.3 mmb/d. Three countries: Saudi Arabia (10.07 mmb/d), Iran (4.25 mmb/d), and the United Arab Emirates (2.81 mmb/d), accounted for about 57 percent of total MENA liquid fuels production on average (see map) between January and November 2010 (latest figures available). Together, Algeria and Libya comprised about 5 percent of global liquid fuels production, or nearly 4 mmb/d.
