OPEC and its partners will start gathering in Vienna as of today, with expectations that a deeper production cut will be the main theme of the meeting. The question of whether the organization will make further reductions to its production at the two-day meeting will probably encourage traders today to speculate. The members of OPEC and a club of allied non-OPEC producers driven by Russia are anticipating at least to maintain the current production cuts at their level of 1.2 million barrels per day up to mid-2020. The deal is currently scheduled to terminate in March. OPEC meets today and the group will be accompanied by its non-OPEC associates tomorrow with a final resolution expected late afternoon.
