Saudi Arabia is widely expected to extend voluntary oil cuts into October and Russia will unveil a new OPEC+ supply cut deal this week, according to its deputy prime minister.
“Data released last week showed that increasing exports from Iran and Nigeria are being offset by falls in Saudi Arabian output,” ANZ Research said in a note, adding that news from Russia also helped ease concerns of increasing supply elsewhere.
On the downside, markets have overall priced in China’s recent measures to boost the country’s faltering economy, offsetting support from the expected oil supply cuts.
