OPEC to be Discussing 9 Month Extension to Oil Production Cut Deal

OPEC members are reportedly forming a consensus around extending their production cutting Deal with other crude exporters by nine months, a move that would help to put a floor under Oil Prices.

That would prolong the agreement among OPEC, Russia and other oil-producing nations to keep 1.8 million barrels a day off the market through the whole of next year. The exporters reached the deal last December and have already extended the agreement once through March of 2018.

Sources told Reuters that OPEC may not agree to the extension at its next policy meeting in November. Instead, they may wait until early next year to make a final decision.

Oil prices strengthened following the report. International benchmark Brent crude futures were up 38 cents, or 0.7 percent, $58.26 per barrel by 10 a.m. EDT. U.S. crude for November delivery was up 31 cents, or 0.6 percent, at $52.19.
