OPEC plans more production cuts

Daily Analysis - 08/11/2019

December OPEC meeting more complicated than previous


OPEC and Russia are analyzing a variety of choices to preserve the balance in the oil market before the critical December conference. OPEC and its allies agreed late last year to lower oil production by 1.2 million barrels per day to sustain prices. The deal will continue until March 2020, and the producers are expected to gather in Vienna to examine the terms of the policy on December 5-6. Peter Lee, senior oil and gas analyst at Fitch Solutions, said “The house view is that the meeting is likely to reaffirm the group’s commitments to the cut that is already in place.”
