The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) has agreed to move its next meeting to July 1, followed by a meeting with non-OPEC allies on July 2, OPEC said in a statement on Wednesday.
According to the statement, the dates for the meetings of the 176th (Ordinary) Meeting OPEC Conference and the 6th OPEC and non-OPEC Ministerial Meeting have been rescheduled to July 1 and July 2, respectively.
"These replace the original dates of June 25 and 26," OPEC stated.
In OPEC and non-OPEC ministerial meeting, members are expected to discuss the future of the production deal which saw oil output slashed by 1.2 million barrels a day.
OPEC and its allies had agreed on Dec. 7, 2018 to collectively lower their oil production by 1.2 million barrels per day for the first six months of 2019.
