last October, OPEC made an agreement requiring the 10 member states with quotas to reduce the daily crude oil production to 26.3 million barrels, and in December, it decided to reduce the daily crude oil production by 500000 barrels again from February. However, only half of OPEC's target of reducing crude oil production by 1.2 million barrels per day for the first time was fulfilled, and the international oil price fell sharply to around $50 per barrel. OPEC president asked the member states of the organization to seriously implement the production reduction agreement. Iran and Venezuela, the hardliners of the organization, called for support for further production cuts to support oil prices. 3. Due to the low risk of establishing a recycled plastic pellet plant, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who visited Iran, said that we know that there is abundant crude oil supply in the market today, and we unanimously request to reduce production and ensure prices together with OPEC

on Sunday, the head of OPEC affairs of Iran's oil ministry said that there was no official decision on whether to hold an emergency meeting to discuss the decline in oil prices in the next few days. Consultations are now under way among Member States. He said that some OPEC member states called for the immediate implementation of the 500000 barrels per day production reduction originally planned for February 1

On Sunday, the oil minister of Qatar said that OPEC was very worried about the decline in crude oil prices, but had not made a decision on whether to hold an emergency meeting. He said that OPEC would fully abide by the original production reduction agreement. At the same time, he believes that what will not be able to give full play to its due role? The price is not important, but how to stabilize the market

the head of Libya's state-owned oil company said it was too early to reach an agreement on convening an emergency OPEC meeting. Kuwait's oil minister al Sabah believes that before the decision to reduce production by 500000 barrels a day on February 1 is implemented, OPEC member states will try to avoid holding meetings to observe the impact of the reduction on the oil market. He said that OPEC held a meeting in Abuja, Nigeria last month and decided to reduce production by 500000 barrels, which will be implemented from February 1. Member States will remain on the sidelines until February 1. If oil prices cannot be maintained after the implementation of the production reduction resolution, OPEC member states may hold another meeting

however, Kuwait's state-owned oil company has informed Korean and Japanese customers that the crude oil supply in February was supplied in full according to the contract. An official of Iran's state-owned oil company in Singapore said Iran is unlikely to cut its February contract supply to Asia. 'our customers in Asia are very sensitive and we cannot change their plans,' he said. However, the headquarters of the company has not made any decision. 60% of Iranian crude oil is exported to Asia

the measures of Kuwait and Iran have also raised doubts about whether OPEC has complied with the production reduction agreement

the warm climate in the United States has restrained the demand for heating fuel. According to the meteorological department, due to the El Nino phenomenon, this winter may be the warmest winter climate in American history. The demand for heating fuel has also decreased significantly. The US Department of energy report showed that the US fuel demand fell to the lowest level in nearly two years at the beginning of this month

Whitner, an analyst at investment bank Calyon Orient, believes that although it is now mid January, the market has left winter and the market atmosphere is quite depressed. Andy sommer, an analyst at HSH Nordbank bank in Hamburg, said that if the warm climate in the United States continues, refineries will reduce the production of heating oil, so the demand for crude oil will also decline.
