Gli Stati membri dell’Opec si stanno orientando per estendere l’accordo sul congelamento del livello di produzione petrolifera. Lo ha detto a Sputnik il ministro iracheno Oliver Jabar Luaibi. Un fatto del genere “porterebbe alla stabilizzazione dei prezzi, che avrebbe un impatto positivo sul bilancio iracheno” ha detto Luaibi. Il ministro ha confermato che l’Opec discuterà la questione dell’estensione in una riunione a Vienna il prossimo 25 maggio.

The member states of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) lean toward extending the deal on freezing the oil production level, Iraqi Oil Minister Jabar Luaibi told Sputnik on Wednesday. “There is… an orientation to the extension, as this would lead to stabilization of prices, which would have a positive impact on the Iraqi budget,” Luaibi said. The minister confirmed that OPEC would discuss the extension issue on May 25 at a regular meeting in Vienna. OPEC on November 30, 2016 agreed in Vienna to reduce its production by 1.2 million barrels per day from the October level. Eleven non-OPEC countries on December 10, 2016 agreed to cut their production by a total of 558,000 barrels per day, including Russia by 300,000 bpd. The agreement was concluded for the first half of 2017 with the possibility of extension. The decision on the future of the agreement will be made in Vienna May 25.
