Gulf OPEC Producers to Keep Q1 Oil Output Below Level
"Gulf oil producers want to make sure that the excess in commercial oil inventories which was built over the past three years will be wiped out completely," the source said.
"The joint OPEC, non-OPEC monitoring committee headed by Saudi Arabia will continue to monitor the market and make sure all countries are adhering to their cuts," the source added.
The joint ministerial monitoring committee, known as the JMMC, is due to meet next in Oman on Jan. 21.
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and other producers including Russia are cutting oil output by 1.8 million barrels per day under a pact running until the end of 2018.
