common & found


Explanation:
I believe that this translation is context bound.
In the first sentence, it should be
'the most common producing countries ...', next 'outside Europe, the plant can be found in' and in the last sentence I would also use 'found'.

'veel (geregeld) voorkomen'= to be of frequent (regular) occurrence

The ...oil occurs on a massive scale in...

The most frequently occurring production countries are...
