Alexander Novak, energy minister for the former Soviet Union, said his country is ready to hike its oil output after the implementation of USA sanctions on Iran: "I don't think we can discuss the exact number at this point but what I can tell you for sure is that we have significant potential to increase our production".

In a speech before the United Nations, Trump reiterated calls on the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries to pump more oil and stop raising prices. The figures are higher than last year's forecast, with rising production in non-cartel states led by the USA a major factor.
