Russia Refuses To Disclose From What Level It Will Cut Production; Will Cut “Only Gradually Due To Technical Issues”
Today’s “OPEC deal” snowjob continued with the statement by Russian energy minister Novak, who moments ago have a press conference in which he praised the production cut conclusion, however, two key aspects of Russia’s contribution to the non-OPEC stood out.
First, the energy minister said that Russia would cut production “only gradually because of technical issues”, and he also refused to note from what level Russia production will be cut. The last is important, because in the past week Russia hinted that instead of actually cutting from a historical reference level, it would “cut” from a level proposed in its 2017 budget, all of which are higher than the October, or November, levels.
