Key Quotes

“There has been no shortage of news-flow around the event recently with prices declining sharply over the last couple months in anticipation that OPEC will not cut production.”

“In recent weeks it appears that the camp has become split with the likes of Saudi Arabia and other low-cost producers with large FX reserves happy to run down the price to gain market share.”

“On the other hand the likes of Venezuela and more recently Iran are reported (Bloomberg) as saying that they may propose a 1m a day cut in barrels produced. They are campaigning for higher prices to balance their budget and improve fiscal positions. “

“We will no doubt hear further statements this week from producers in the run up to the meeting so it’s something to keep an eye on.”
