Opec agrees deal to control prices

OPEC+ reached a deal on oil production increases Sunday, following a protracted dispute between the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia

  • The Opec cartel and partners such as Russia will boost supply from August after prices climbed to two-and-half-year highs during the pandemic.
  • The move should have an impact on petrol prices at the pump, which have also rocketed.
  • The price of Brent crude oil is up 43% this year to almost $74 a barrel.
  • Last year, Opec and its partners cut production by a record 10 million barrels per day (bpd) amid a pandemic-induced slump in demand and collapsing prices.
  • Under the agreement, the group will begin coordinated increases in production in August. Overall production will grow by 400,000 barrels per day on a monthly basis thereafter.
  • However, this year the price of oil has surged as economies have reopened, contributing to rising inflation in some countries and threatening to put the brakes on the global recovery.
