Oil price to rise: Iran’s oil minister
EghtesadOnline: Iran’s oil minister estimated that oil and gas condensations sale to reach $41 billion by the end of Iran fiscal year (20 March 2016- 21 March 2017), but it doesn’t mean that Tehran to receive $41 billion in cash because it takes times.
Iran's oil minister, Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said that he was confident the OPEC and non-OPEC members would commit to the output cut deal agreed in November, noting that prices of oil would rise further as a result, ISNA reported.
"It is estimated that the price of oil will rise and reach to $55 per barrel. I am certain that the OPEC and non-OPEC members will cut oil output as committed. This will remove the oil surplus from the market, balance the demand and supply, and lift prices," BijanNamdarZanganeh added.
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) agreed on Nov. 30 to cut output by 1.2 million bpd to 32.5 million bpd for the first six months of 2017, in addition to 558,000 bpd of cuts agreed to by independent producers such as Russia, Oman and Mexico.
