OPEC+ reaches agreement to reduce oil production

The oil producing countries united under the OPEC+ alliance have reached an agreement to cut oil production by 9.7 million barrels per day – the single largest output reduction in history.

The cut equals about 10% of global oil supply. Experts believe the decision will affect prices mainly in the second half of the year. Today’s inventory needs to be shifted first before the market rebalances.
