Members of the Organization of countries-exporters of oil (OPEC) on Thursday, December 6, has reached a preliminary agreement on the reduction of oil production.
“OPEC on Thursday reached a preliminary agreement to reduce oil production, but has not yet decided on a final figure,” – said the Agency delegate.
Earlier, the world oil prices reference marks have fallen sharply to $2,97 (4,82%) – to $58,59 per barrel.
Note that even on the morning of Thursday oil traded at the level of 61,06 USD per barrel. And last week it became known that from the beginning of November the price of oil Brent has fallen in price on 22%, WTI – by almost 23%. This is the sharpest monthly drop in prices in 10 years.
