Earlier it became known that OPEC+ participants are also discussing the possibility of reducing oil production by 2 million barrels per day. According to insiders, Nigeria and Angola are against this state of affairs. The UAE is not too interested in reducing the indicators, and Saudi Arabia is the initiator of reducing the production of raw materials.
