OPEC, allies rebuff Trump’s call for boost to oil output

OPEC and allied oil producers including Russia ended their meeting on Sunday with no formal recommendation for any additional supply boost, effectively rebuffing U.S. President Donald Trump’s calls for action to cool the market.

Oman’s Oil Minister Mohammed bin Hamad Al-Rumhy and Kuwaiti counterpart Bakhit al-Rashidi told reporters that producers had agreed they needed to focus on reaching 100 percent compliance with production cuts agreed at an OPEC meeting in June.

That effectively means compensating for falling Iranian production. Al-Rumhy said the exact mechanism for doing so had not been discussed.
