Saudi bags deeper output cuts as OPEC+ members back new pact

On Friday, the 6th of December 2019, a summit of OPEC+ nations, a pact of OPEC members alongside its Russia-led allies, that took place over December 5th and 6th in OPEC headquarter Vienna, Austria, had provided the OPEC-kingpin, Saudi Arabia, the world’s second-largest crude oil producer, with a spearheaded deal that might yield the crude oil industry’s one of the steepest output cuts in decades to offset supply glut worries and to rebalance global crude oil prices amid a stubborn US inventory build.

Meanwhile, adding that a Saudi plan to incline a deeper output curb was backed by the OPEC-allies led by Russia, Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdul Aziz bin Salman was quoted saying late on Friday (December 6th) that the latest meet of OPEC+ members could deliver a plan to slash crude output by 2.1 million barrels per day or roughly 2.1 per cent of entire global crude oil supply, a pivotal comment that spontaneously surged the Brent crude more than 2 per cent to $64 per barrel.

Besides, adding that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s plan to slash crude oil output would was aimed at laying off a solid groundwork to grapple with any kind of occasional weakness, a co-founder of Energy Aspects, Amrita Sen said on Saturday (December 7th), “The Saudi goal was not necessarily to push oil prices significantly higher, but rather... to put a firm floor under them during the first quarter to temper any seasonal weakness. ”
