OPEC Consensus Over Output Hike Unlikely

Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh rejected leaving the 2016 pact of curbing oil output by OPEC members.
"Every decision in OPEC needs unanimity … I do not believe that we can reach an agreement in this meeting," Zanganeh was also quoted as saying by Shana, Oil Ministry's news portal, late on Tuesday.
His comments show that OPEC members are set to clash when they meet on June 22-23 in Vienna, Austria, to discuss the proposal to end global output cuts.
OPEC's leading oil producer Saudi Arabia and non-OPEC member Russia have said they are prepared to hike output to appease USA about supply and prices.
However, according to the Iranian minister, the market's current need for more oil is rather exaggerated and could cause great damage to global markets.
