OPEC meets with allies, including Russia, on Wednesday to endorse a decision on the production policy of the first of August amid widespread speculation in the global market that
the group will reduce supply restrictions as the global economy slowly recovers from the Coronavirus pandemic.
It is reported that the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies, in what is known as OPEC, have produced 9.7 million barrels per day since May,
or ten percent of global supplies after the virus cut a third of global demand.
After July, the cuts are set to increase to 7.7 million barrels per day until December.
In this regard, a committee of ministers of major producing countries will meet in what is known as the joint ministerial monitoring committee today, Wednesday, after 12:00 GMT, to
