The rapid decline in oil inventories and worries about supplies after the US decision to withdraw from the worldwide nuclear deal with Iran, as well as Venezuela's collapsing output, were behind the change in OPEC's thinking.
Saudi Arabia has 22 per cent of the world's petroleum reserves and is the world's largest exporter. In addition, US oil production is ramping up quite steadily. US production broke 10 million bpd for the first time in 48 years in November. Baker Hughes reported an oil rig count increase of 15 last week.
