VIENNA (Reuters) - OPEC is still debating whether to extend oil output cuts by six or nine months, UAE Energy Minister Suhail bin Mohammed al-Mazroui said on Tuesday.

"We will listen to the analysis from the organisation ... We need to see - six months or nine months," he said. Asked whether cuts could be extended by 12 months, he said: "Let's not go there."

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries meets in Vienna on Thursday to decide on output policy after June.
