OPEC JMMC in Focus

For the oil complex, all eyes will be on the JMMC in which OPEC+ will discuss delaying a production hike of 2mbpd for 3-6 months and instead maintain the 7.7mbpd in 2021 as the recovery in oil demand slows, largely owing to renewed lockdown measures. However, a topic that will likely be addressed is the surge in Libyan oil production which is now estimated at 1.2mbpd, up 100kbpd a couple of months ago. This will mean that OPEC+ may have to make some difficult choices at the Nov 30—Dec 1 OPEC meeting.

Reminder, The next meetings of the JTC and the JMMC are scheduled for 16 November and 17 November 2020.
