“The continuation of the reductions by the end of the first quarter is aimed at preventing the entry of [extra] oil into the market during the minimum seasonal demand and the shutdown of a number of major refineries for maintenance. In addition, [signatories to the OPEC + agreement] are trying to gain time to assess the impact of IMO 2020 “, – experts said.
