The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) avoided agreements with major suppliers for future cooperation.
There have been 18 hours spent to encourage major suppliers of oil cooperate for cutting excess oil. Nonetheless, there is no accord obtain, which extended the discussions until late November. Supposedly, the organization will finalize the agreement on removing one-year highs of oil prices days after the said period.
Brazil’s Oil and Gas Secretary, Marcio Felix, stated that no supply commitments were obtained from non-OPEC nations on Saturday. Felix added in a phone interview that its country would not constrict generation of oil. However, it is willing to hold similar conferences in the future.
The talks on Friday reached its dead end when Iran and Iraq declined to take part in curbing supply. Iran and Iraq are two nations more interested in increasing oil production, which formed the hinges on the conference, stated by Azerbaijan’s Energy Minister Natiq Aliyev.
Kazakhstan’s Deputy Energy Minister, Magzum Miragaliyev, stated in a post-meeting interview that the conference remained to be a refresher on coming up with real numbers before curbing the supply.
The organization’s top official warned that if last month’s supply cut will not be implemented, oil producers would be affected roughly. Last month’s OPEC-Algerian agreement helped make oil prices reach more than $50 a barrel, which is a 15-month high. The output was reduced to 32.5 million to 33 million barrels daily.
Oman, which is a non-member, stated the country would cooperate to the oil curbing deal. On the other hand, Russia said it would freeze oil production instead of cutting. Both countries are willing to take part, but still waiting for the organization to come up with a figure-specific internal agreement.
OPEC conference was participated by the organization’s officials and representatives from Azebaijan, Oman, Kazakhstan, Brazil, and Mexico on Saturday.
