A majority of OPEC and allied oil exporters support a cut in the global supply of crude, Oman Oil Minister Mohammed bin Hamad al-Rumhi said on Sunday.
‘Many of us share this view,’ the minister said when asked about the need for a cut. Asked if it could amount to 500,000 or one million barrels per day, he replied: ‘I think it is unfair for me to throw numbers now.’
He was speaking in Abu Dhabi where an oil market monitoring committee was held on Sunday, attended by top exporters.
‘We need a consensus,’ he said, indicating that non-OPEC Russia would need to approve any decision. Oman is also not a member of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries.
Saudi Arabia is discussing a proposal to cut oil output by up to 1 million barrels per day by OPEC and its allies, two sources close to the discussions told Reuters on Sunday.
