Global Oil Agreement

The first details of the agreement, which Opec outlined on Thursday, would have resulted in the group and its allies reducing by 10 million barrels per day, or 10% of global supply, from May 1. An additional five million barrels are expected to be cut by other countries outside the group, such as the United States, Canada, Brazil and Norway. (Bloomberg) — This was supposed to be the week in which OPEC countries gathered in Baghdad to celebrate the cartel`s six decades as a dominant force in global oil markets. It was not immediately clear whether the Trump administration has made a formal commitment to cut U.S. production, but in the face of falling prices, many companies in the country have already cut production. There is no international mechanism to strictly enforce these production agreements and fraud is common. Later, on 3 April, the Saudi foreign and energy ministers issued statements criticizing Putin and accusing Russia of not participating in the OPEC agreement. [38] Iraq, with one of the worst compliance rates in May, agreed to further cuts, although it was not clear that Baghdad would reach an agreement with oil companies to curb Iraqi production. [OPEP/O] OPEC members and their allies began talking last week in the hope that the United States, Canada and other Western producers would accept explicit cuts of up to four million or five million barrels per day. Instead, U.S. officials simply assured that crude oil production would be reduced over time, in addition to the voluntary reductions that have already begun at some U.S.

companies. The agreement announced sunday will amount to 7.7 million barrels per day from July to December and 5.8 million barrels per day from January 2021 to April 2022. “I welcome OPEC-plus for achieving an important agreement that comes at a crucial time today, as oil demand continues to recover and the world economy is reopened,” U.S. Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette wrote on Twitter after the extension. Opec`s producers and allies have agreed on a record oil deal that will reduce global production by about 10 percent after demand fell due to coronavirus blockages. “Through the grace of Allah, and then with wise leadership, continuous efforts and ongoing conversations since dawn on Friday, we now announce the conclusion of the historic agreement to reduce OPEC members` production by about 10 million barrels of oil per day from May 1, 2020,” Dr. al-Fadhel wrote in a tweet. “President Trump, who has spent the past three years criticizing OPEC, has become the de facto chairman of the producer group,” said Helima Croft, head of global commodities strategy at RBC Capital Markets.
