Following the meeting of the OPEC + Monitoring Ministerial Committee (JMMC), held last week, it was announced that the deadline for compensating for the unreduced OPEC + production volumes until the end of 2020 was extended. The Minister of Energy of Saudi Arabia, Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, expressed confidence that in September-December 2.4 million bbl / d of the OPEC + volumes that have not been reduced will be compensated.

JMMC advised countries involved in the oil limitation deal to be prepared to take further measures to stabilize the market if necessary. “In the current environment, JMMC emphasized the importance of proactive and proactive action and recommended that participating (in the OPEC + deal) countries be ready to take further action if necessary,” the OPEC said in a statement following the committee meeting.
