OPEC, partners discuss oil supply cut of up to 1.4 million bpd

Will Gas Prices Go Up? Saudi Arabia to Cut Production

He also said he hopes to make progress on restoring relations with the USA when he meets Trump at the end of this month on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Argentina.

"During October, shipments of Iranian oil fell 90 kb/d to 1.8 mb/d with waiver countries - China, India, Korea, Turkey, Japan, Italy, Greece and Taiwan - loading more than 70% of the volume, according to Kpler data".

"Yes, we have done this in the past but this was not the right systematic approach", a senior Russian government source said. America's increasing inventories suggests "the nation's crude exports could become more active, resulting in excess global supplies".

An International Energy Agency report that pointed to rising global inventories also added to oversupply concerns. The IEA estimates total USA oil supply will rise by 2.1 million bpd this year and another 1.3 million bpd in 2019, from a current record of more than 11 million bpd.

Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih told reporters on Sunday in Abu Dhabi that the kingdom will pare its exports by 500,000 barrels a day in December.

Oil clung to its rebound as tension over USA sanctions against Saudi Arabia overshadowed a jump in American crude stockpiles.

A small reduction from the October level would be a "win-win" for Moscow, the second source said. The talks are preliminary, and the size of the final cut will largely depend on the starting point they use, said one of the people.

US bank Morgan Stanley said on Wednesday that China's economic "conditions deteriorated materially" in the third quarter of 2018, while analysts at Capital Economics said China's "near-term economic outlook still remains downbeat". The then Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi blocked an OPEC supply cut to preserve market share.

Opec is to gather in Vienna to assess the market.

The crash in oil prices appears to be overdetermined. "Now everything is being adjusted". Output, however, rose by 127,000 bpd to 32.9 million bpd, Opec said.

The OPEC-led deal got rid of a supply glut that built up in 2014 as supply from the United States and other countries outside the group soared. The head of Lukoil, Vagit Alekperov, voiced opposition this week to any cut. The surge in U.S. production is contributing to rising stockpiles. However, I am expected in the December OPEC meeting to be the catalyst to give some relief to the falling Oil market as they announce production cuts.

Penultimate week, the United States (US) imposed a sanction on the oil-rich state of Iran, after weeks of threats and permutations on what would be the likely outcome of such action on the oil rich country.
