OPEC+ meeting, where OPEC and non-OPEC countries took part, took place in Vienna on Thursday. The main issue of the meeting was the extension of oil production cut for the term of six to 9 months. The countries agreed to extend oil cut deal until the end of 2018 with the same conditions.

According to Chris Midgley, S&P Global Platts’ head of analytics, “OPEC and non-OPEC countries, having agreed to extend current production quotas, manage the fine balance, which is likely to maintain the prices at current levels”.
