OPEC+ sticking to plan

OPEC+ announced today it will stick to its previous output plan and lift production quotas by 400kbpd in January, in large part due to the Technical Committee reducing its forecast for a supply surplus in Q1 2022. Analysts’ expectations had built up prior to the meeting, believing that OPEC+ could consider reducing the production quota. By sticking to plan, OPEC+ provides much needed assistance to a crude tanker market in the doldrums, as VLCC earnings remain at 30-year lows. However, uncertainties persist, with the OPEC+ keeping the meeting formally open, ready to “make immediate adjustments if required”.
