No consensus on oil production freeze at Doha Meeting | Saipem signs MoU for Iranian Gas Project  | Saudi’s Yasreef Refinery get $4.7bn international loan 

No consensus on oil production freeze at Doha Meeting

doha oil freeze saudi iran agreementA draft agreement between several OPEC and non-OPEC members was expected to see monthly oil production levels being frozen to January levels. The freeze was planned to last till October 2016 after which producers would meet again in Russia to review progress and plan the way forward. The move was aimed in a bid to correct the imbalance between global demand and supply of crude oil in the global market. While some producers (such as Kuwait) were in favor of the move, Iran had declined to participate in the strategy. Saudi Arabia announced that it would not participate unless all major oil producing countries (including Iran) agreed to freeze production. Due to the various disagreements between country leaders, who were unable to strike a deal, crude oil prices witnessed another decline.
