Saudi energy minister says President Trump is entitled to tweet anything he wants
Saudi Arabia's newly appointed energy minister said the country would keep overcomplying with production cuts and deeper cuts would be discussed at OPEC's next full meeting.
Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman said that the meeting was productive, fruitful and transparent."And more important(ly) I think every participant did see that there is a role to play and a way to improve this endeavor," Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman said at a press conference, shortly after the JMMC meeting concluded.
Sitting alongside his Russian counterpart, Abdulaziz said Thursday's talks had "awakened" Riyadh and Moscow to a "new reality."He suggested both countries had not been "too inclusive" to other OPEC members in previous meetings, before adding this would change over the coming months.
"I think our colleagues have welcomed this change," Abdulaziz said.Shortly thereafter, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak stressed it was "extremely important" for all members signed up to the declaration of production cuts to reach full compliance.
He also reiterated Moscow's commitment to the agreement.'Tweet anything he wants'When asked how OPEC planned to navigate President Donald Trump's social media missives on the oil market, Abdulaziz replied: "The president is the president. He is entitled to tweet anything he wants."
This meeting is of particular interest as it comes after defacto OPEC leader Saudi Arabia appointed new Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman to replace Khalid al-Falih.However, the 14-member producer organization is not expected to deviate from its current policy of collaborating with non-OPEC producers to curb oil production.
The full coalition will next meet in Vienna, Austria in early December to decide whether any further action is required for 2020.Since 2017, OPEC and a group of other non-OPEC producers led by Russia (collectively known as "OPEC+") have cut their oil production in a bid to rebalance oil markets and support prices.
The OPEC+ deal was forged after a period of slumping oil prices following a glut in supply and soft demand. The current agreement has been extended several times and is set to last until March 2020.The defacto leader of OPEC, Saudi Arabia, and Russia are the most influential members of OPEC+ and the energy ministers from both countries have said that they are committed to the deal.
However, the potential for price declines is present amid a rising U.S. shale oil supply and a faltering demand outlook. Read more: CNBC »
