The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies on the eve of the deal agreed to continue reducing oil supplies until March 2020, as its participants overcame internal disagreements, trying to maintain world prices.

The OPEC + agreement on the extension of oil production contraction for nine months should lead to a decrease in crude oil reserves in the second half of this year, which will raise world prices, analysts at Citi Research say.
“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.
