Saudi Arabia confirms to continue voluntary 1 mln bpd output cut for December

Saudi Arabia will continue with its voluntary output cut of 1 million barrels per day (bpd) until the end of December, an official source at the ministry of energy said on Sunday.

The source said in a statement that the cut would be reviewed next month to consider extending it, deepening it, or increasing production.

Russia to continue voluntary cut

Meanwhile, Russia will continue the additional voluntary supply cut of 300,000 barrels per day from its crude oil and petroleum product exports until the end of December 2023 as previously announced, Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said on Sunday.

Russia has agreed to undertake two separate reductions in oil supply: in April it decided to cut crude output by 500,000 barrels per day (bpd) until the end of 2024, while in August it said it would reduce exports by 300,000 bpd until the end of this year.

“The additional voluntary cut is intended to strengthen the measures taken by OPEC+ countries to maintain the stability and balance of oil markets,” Novak said.

According to him, Russia will consider next month whether to deepen its voluntary export cuts or increase production.
