World oil prices in the morning of December 6 decline after sales on the exchanges of Europe and Asia and in anticipation of OPEC meeting in Vienna. This is evidenced by the auction data.
At 7.50 MSK the cost of February futures for the North sea oil mixture of Brent decreased by 0.83% – to $61.05 per barrel, January futures for WTI crude oil-by 1.04%, to $52.34 per barrel.
Commodity markets were under pressure on Thursday in the light of the refusal of global investors from risky assets, as evidenced by sales on the stock exchanges of Asia in the current trading and Europe — the day before.
At the same time, OPEC and OPEC+ meetings held in Vienna remain the focus of the oil market, RIA Novosti reports. On Wednesday, there was a meeting of the Ministerial monitoring Committee of OPEC+, which recommended the Alliance to reduce oil production in the first half of 2019, but so far without a specific amount of reduction.
On Thursday, this issue will be discussed at the OPEC summit, and on Friday — at a meeting of all countries participating in the OPEC+deal.
