RT / The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and independent producers led by Russia made the right decision to extend their oil production cuts until the end of 2018, according to Russian Energy Minister Aleksandr Novak.
Read more Oil prices jump as Russia & OPEC agree to extend production cut to end of 2018 He told RT it provides an opportunity for a longer-term understanding of the joint action in the market and the goals set by the major oil producers will undoubtedly be achieved.
The decision comes as a “result of respective joint actions for balancing the market and removing the oil surplus accumulated over the years when crude prices were high.”
According to the minister, Russia backs the decisions and has built a very constructive business relationship with OPEC, “and I would even say based on trust.”
Novak said it was apparent during the ten months of the previous agreement the sides aimed at achieving their goal.
He also said compliance was over 100 percent, which according to the energy minister had never happened when OPEC was acting independently, without involving countries outside the organization.
“That’s why today we see that our [OPEC and non-OPEC] cooperation helps not only working to balance the oil market but also to develop bilateral relations,” he said.
The Russian minister added Moscow currently has many exciting projects with OPEC countries, including Saudi Arabia and Iraq.
