OPEC+ Panel Calls for More Oil CutsOPEC+ Panel Calls for More Oil Cuts

An OPEC, non-OPEC technical panel has recommended extending a current oil supply cut pact until the end of 2020 and more output reductions due to the impact of the coronavirus on oil demand, Algeria’s oil minister said in a statement.
Mohamed Arkab, who currently holds the presidency of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), said that the OPEC+ Joint Technical Committee, known as the JTC, has recommended that “an additional reduction in production be made until the end of the second quarter of 2020,” Reuters reported.
“The coronavirus epidemic has a negative impact on economic activities, especially on the transport, tourism and industry, in China particularly, and also increasingly in the Asian region and gradually in the world,” Arkab said.
