Saudi Arabia Says Ready To Work With Others To Stabilize Oil Market
Monday, November 23, 2015
KHOBAR, Saudi Arabia/TEHRAN- Saudi Arabia's cabinet said on Monday it was ready to cooperate with OPEC and non-OPEC countries to achieve market stability, days before OPEC meets to review its year-long policy of not supporting prices.
Oil prices jumped $1 a barrel after the comments, even though they repeated what Saudi Oil Minister Ali Naimi said in a speech last week. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries meets on Dec. 4.
"The council (of ministers) ... stressed the kingdom's role in (achieving) the stability of the oil market and its continuous readiness and efforts to cooperate with all OPEC and non-OPEC countries to maintain the stability of the market and prices," the cabinet said.
OPEC has been urging non-member producers such as Russia to join it in cutting supply to reduce a glut that has more than halved prices since mid-2014. So far, non-OPEC countries have refused and OPEC in turn has declined to reduce its supplies.
