Conoco CEO says OPEC should extend output curbs beyond 2018
OPEC needs to embrace its role as the world’s “baffle" on oil prices if it wants to keep crude markets stable, ConocoPhillips CEO Ryan Lance said on Tuesday.
That means extending production curbs beyond this year even as U.S. producers including Conoco plan to increase output, the CEO said in an interview with Bloomberg TV.
OPEC and other major producers agreed to limit their output in 2016. That helped rein in a global supply glut and revived prices. But it effectively ceded new revenues to upstart U.S. shale suppliers. During a media briefing in Houston on Monday, OPEC Secretary General Mohammad Barkindo said it was too early for OPEC to discuss extending the cuts into 2019.
“They have to remain disciplined; they have to keep trying to take the volatility out of the equation," Lance said from the CERAWeek by IHS Markit oil-industry conference in Houston. “That’s the role they can play."
