Statement Released Following 2nd Smallest Production Hike In OPEC History

OPEC+

OPEC releases statement following today's JMMC and OPEC+ meetings in Vienna.

  • Full statement: https://www.opec.org/opec_web/en/press_room/6984.htm

Let's put the 26,000 b/d Saudi increase into context: the kingdom's quota for Sept is 11.006m b/d. That's ~7,650 barrels per minute..."
