1 Dec at the G20 summit in Argentina Buenos Aires Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced that it has reached agreement with crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman al-Saud on the extension of the deal, OPEC+. By its terms, the member countries of OPEC (Organization of countries-exporters of oil) and 11 third-party States, including Russia agree to cut production in order to achieve higher prices on the world market.
Oil became cheaper in the last few weeks because of the increase in US inventories, slowing demand growth and fears of market participants about a possible oversupply. November futures price for a barrel of Brent fell by 21.6 percent to 62.4 per dollar. This was a record figure for the last ten years.
