VIENNA (Reuters) - Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zangeneh said on Wednesday there seemed to be a consensus for major oil producers to extend output cuts by nine months and that it was important for OPEC as well as non-members to comply for any duration.
Asked whether there was a consensus for a nine-month extension, he said: "Yes, it seems so."
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries meets in Vienna on Thursday to consider whether to prolong an accord reached in December in which OPEC and 11 non-members agreed to cut oil output by about 1.8 million barrels per day in the first half of 2017.
