SbB Figure 1.18 data mismatch
I believe that the data you supply for the World Oil Production (second panel in the Figure) does not match the graph for the year 2004. Other OPEC is supposed to have increased production by 2.193 mil barrels/day in the dataset you provide, however on the publication chart this number looks to be less than 1. Can you please let me know which one of these we should trust? Thank you very much,

The data in the csv file are correct. In the chart, the 'Other OPEC countries' series is mistakenly scaled to the right axis.

Apologies for the confusion.
