On Sunday, at the opening of the Abu Dhabi meeting of OPEC member countries and those who were not members of the deal, the Saudi official has already announced that his country will reduce oil production, which will lead to a decrease in exports of 500,000 barrels per day in the following month.
Between the increase in production in some of the major producing countries and the fears of falling demand, oil prices fell nearly 20% in one month, after a peak in early October, when it reached the highest level in the last four years.
Since December 2016, OPEC countries led by Saudi Arabia and other non-cartel producers such as Russia have agreed to cut oil production.
