The agency reported – quoting a source – that because of this frustration, Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman offered to step down from the position of Deputy Chairman of the Joint Ministerial Monitoring Committee in OPEC.
The position of Vice President was offered to the UAE, but it did not want it. One of the sources stated that the Saudi minister is very upset, but he will not deviate from consensus.
At the OPEC meeting last Monday, Saudi Arabia called on member states to extend supply cuts for 3 months.
Reuters quoted sources as saying that the UAE sees the need for countries with excess production to adhere to the reductions specified for them, and to compensate for the excess production previously.
And the oil ministers of the “OPEC Plus” alliance postponed the remote talks scheduled for Tuesday on the policy of oil production next year to tomorrow, Thursday.
The size of the current cuts is 7 million 700 thousand barrels per day, which represents about 8% of global demand.
Reuters quoted sources as saying that the main countries in the coalition are still different about the volume of production, amid a weakness in global demand due to the Corona pandemic. The ministers held a meeting on Monday, during which the Saudi energy minister stated that he would step down from participating in the chairmanship of the coalition ministerial oversight committee.
The sources said that the UAE’s stance added to the complications after Abu Dhabi stipulated that member states adhere to their commitments on production cuts in order to support the extension.
Meanwhile, oil prices fell after fears about an increase in global supply returned, after members of the “OPEC Plus” coalition postponed their talks.
The price of Brent crude in contracts next January decreased to about $ 47.6 a barrel, while the price of US West Texas crude fell to about $ 45 a barrel.
