Inconclusive over production output, crude stays at lows

With barely a week passing by since top crude oil producers discussed the possibility of freezing output to prop up crude oil prices, Saudi Arabia has already ruled out a production cut. Saudi Arabia’s oil minister Ali al-Naimi stated that the co-ordinated production cuts would not fructify as many producing nations were not willing to do so.

It is also known that Iran has already ruled out freezing output. Non-OPEC member Russia has so far agreed to reducing its supply.

Iran’s oil minister Bijan Zagahneh was quoted as describing the move as a “joke”. His comments came as nations had asked Iran to restrict output to 1m barrels a day but increased theirs to about 10m barrels for export.

This sort of a disagreement continues to keep WTI Crude at $31.48 (NYMEX) and Brent Crude at $32.95 a barrel.
