OPEC and allies such as Russia are unlikely to announce further curbs to oil output this week despite a price drop, sources told, and will extend the period for countries like Iraq and Nigeria to compensate for earlier overproduction.
OPEC and allies, a group known as OPEC+, have been reducing production since May to support oil prices after global demand plunged in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
World oil demand will fall more steeply in 2020 than previously forecast due to the coronavirus and recover more slowly than expected next year, OPEC said, potentially making it harder for the group and its allies to support the market.
U.S. energy firms cut the number of oil and natural gas rigs operating for the first time in four weeks even as a rebound in crude prices from coronavirus lows over the past few months prompted some producers to return to the wellpad. The U.S. oil and gas rig count, an early indicator of future output, fell by two to 254 in the week to Sep. 11, according to data from energy services firm Baker Hughes Co.
