The focus is now on the decisions that the “OPEC +” alliance will take at its meeting on 5 October, after it was agreed at the previous meeting to reduce production by only 100,000 barrels per day for the month of October.
Data reported by Reuters showed that “OPEC +” did not meet its production target with a difference of 3.58 million barrels per day in August, which is a larger deficit than in July.
