Oil producers 'might have to' extend output cuts: Saudi

  • Print
AFP, Abu Dhabi :
Saudi Arabia's energy minister said on Thursday that oil-producing countries might have to extend output cuts agreed for the first six months of the year in order to achieve the desired rebalancing of the market.
"We might have to extend in order to reach the target... of stock levels," Khalid al-Falih told an energy forum in Abu Dhabi, referring to a deal between OPEC and non-OPEC producers to cut production by around 1.8 million barrels per day.
Falih, whose country is the world's largest exporter, said there was a sort of "initial agreement " on the need to extend the deal after talks in Kuwait last month.
He said producers would continue to assess market figures until next month, when ministers are expected to take a final decision at a meeting in Vienna.
"There was a high level of commitment in the first three months, but despite that, we have not achieved the target" of reducing the supply glut, he said.
