IRAN'S OIL BENEFITS: 3.9 MBD
IRNA wrote, OPEC in its 171st ordinary meeting on Wednesday, November 30, agreed to Iran's share of 3.9 million barrels per day in its total output.
The petroleum ministers of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) have agreed to cut 1.2 million barrels a day from the Organization's present output.
The OPEC in its 171st ordinary meeting on Wednesday, November 30, reached the agreement for the first ever since 2008 to decrease its production, hence being able to implement the Algiers accord of September 28.
Based on the Algiers accord, the Organization was to minimize the production level to 32.5 million barrels per day to 33 million barrels per day.
The minus politicized OPEC decision proves that under difficult conditions important decisions still can be made and play a major role in the world energy market.
Predictions show that following the OPEC decision, oil price will reach 50 to 55 dollars a barrel.
Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh had prior to the OPEC session announced, 'If economic spirit governs the meeting of the oil and energy ministers of OPEC, we will reach decision very soon; however, if politics are to be involved, the decision making will be times very difficult.'
Per OPEC agreement on Wednesday, Saudi Arabia will cut its production by 500,000 barrels per day to the level of 10.6 million barrels per day.

AN - China National Offshore Oil Corp. (CNOOC) is willing to invest $3 billion in its existing oil and gas operation in Nigeria, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said on Sunday following a meeting with the Chinese in Abuja.
REUTERS - Production at Libya’s giant Sharara oil field was expected to fall by at least 160,000 barrels per day (bpd) on Saturday after two staff were abducted in an attack by an unknown group, the National Oil Corporation (NOC) said.
IMF - Output grew by 3.8 percent in 2017, underpinned by a resilient non-hydrocarbon sector, with robust implementation of GCC-funded projects as well as strong activity in the financial, hospitality, and education sectors. The banking system remains stable with large capital buffers. Growth is projected to decelerate over the medium term.
IMF - Higher oil prices and short-term portfolio inflows have provided relief from external and fiscal pressures but the recovery remains challenging. Inflation declined to its lowest level in more than two years. Real GDP expanded by 2 percent in the first quarter of 2018 compared to the first quarter of last year. However, activity in the non-oil non-agricultural sector remains weak as lower purchasing power weighs on consumer demand and as credit risk continues to limit bank lending.
