WSJ: OPEC is studying the suspension of Russia’s participation in the OPEC + deal

Views: 306

The Wall Street Journal, citing OPEC delegates, reports that some OPEC members are considering suspending Russia’s participation in the OPEC+ deal amid Western sanctions.

The publication says that such a possibility is being considered “as Western sanctions and a partial European ban begin to undermine Moscow’s ability to produce more oil.”

Russia last year agreed with OPEC and nine non-OPEC countries to increase oil production on a monthly basis. 

However, according to the newspaper, “its production is expected to fall by about 8% this year.”
