OPEC Reaches Deal To Cut Production; Brent Crude Jumps Over 12%

OPEC Reaches Deal To Cut Production; Brent Crude Jumps Over 12%

Omar Habib,

Talking Points:

- OPEC members agreed to cut by 1.2 million barrels per day.

- OPEC is likely to reach out to non-OPEC members to coordinate a deal.

- Crude Oil jumped over 12% on the news and earlier reports that such a deal was in the making..

OPEC members ended months of keeping markets on edge by securing a deal to cut output by 1.2 million barrels a day. This cut brings the group’s total production down to 32.5 million barrels a day, beginning January 2017. The cut is split across most members of the group, here is a breakdown:

Saudia Arabia: Cut 486,000 B/D

Algeria: Cut 50,000 B/D

Ecuador: Cut 26,000 B/D

Angola: Cut 87,000 B/D

Gabon: Cut 9,000 B/D

Iraq: Cut 210,000 B/D

Kuwait: Cut 131,000 B/D

Qatar: Cut 30,000 B/D

UAE: Cut 139,000 B/D

Venezuela: Cut 95,000 B/D

*Iran: Allowed to increase production by 90k B/D

**Libya and Nigeria exempted from production deal

OPEC also mentioned that they are likely to reach out to non-OPEC members, saying that the final production cut agreements have to include both OPEC and non-OPEC producers. OPEC members say they are targeting a price range of $50 to $60 a barrel.

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak spoke later in the day saying that Russia would gladly join OPEC in cutting production, willing to cut up to 300k barrels per day. Non-OPEC members meet in 10 days to discuss cooperation with OPEC in production cuts.
