OPEC aiming for oil price stability between $60-$70/b: Equatorial Guinea
OPEC members largely agree that maintaining a stable oil price between $60-70/b is ideal for the global economy, Equatorial Guinea's energy minister said Sunday.
"We all probably would like higher [oil prices] because we have more revenue, but we are conscious this is not good for the economy," Gabriel Obiang Lima told reporters at the Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum in Abu Dhabi. "It depends on who you ask, but I think the consensus is that that $60-70/b is OK for producers and for consumers."
Front-month ICE Brent closed Friday at $64.98/b, and OPEC and its allies will be closely watching the benchmark in the lead-up to their next meeting March 5-6 in Vienna, when they will decide whether to deepen, ease or extend their production cut accord, said Obiang, who represents OPEC's smallest producer.
OPEC, Russia and nine other countries are in the fourth year of output cuts aimed at supporting prices, with the current deal calling on the 24 countries to cut 1.7 million b/d through the end of March.
