OPEC keeps production at current level

Print | Front Page | Email this story

VIENNA (AP) — OPEC oil ministers have effectively scrapped their official output ceiling gand agreed to keep producing above that level.

A statement at the end of the meeting Friday did not mention any decision on how much the 12-nation group should pump. But officials told reporters that there was agreement to continue producing at present numbers.

The official ceiling remains 30 million barrels a day. But for more than a year there has been overproduction ranging from just over 1 million barrels a day to nearly twice that much.

OPEC is unhappy with crude prices hovering at around $40 a barrel. But only a few members appeared ready to cut output in an attempt to drive up both supply and prices.
