The participants of the 53rd Meeting of the Joint Ministerial Monitoring Committee (JMMC) of the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies, OPEC+, agreed to keep current oil production levels unchanged.

Held via videoconference on Wednesday, the JMMC reviewed the crude oil production data for the months of January and February 2024, noting to the high conformity for participating OPEC and non-OPEC countries of the Declaration of Cooperation (DoC).

The Committee welcomed Iraq and Kazakhstan's pledge to achieve full conformity as well as compensate for overproduction.

Addtionally, it welcomed the announcement by the Russian Federation that its voluntary adjustments in the second quarter of 2024 will be based on production instead of exports.

The JMMC stated that participating countries with outstanding overproduced volumes for the months of January, February, and March 2024, will submit their detailed compensation plans to the OPEC Secretariat by April 30, 2024.

The Committee also noted that it will continue to monitor the conformity of the production adjustments decided upon at the 35th ONOMM held on June 4, 2023, and the additional voluntary production adjustments announced by some participating OPEC and participating non-OPEC countries in April 2023, and the subsequent adjustments in November 2023 and February 2024.

It further stated that it will continue to closely assess market conditions and noted the willingness of the DoC countries to address market developments and their readiness to take additional measures at any time building on the strong cohesion between OPEC and participating non-OPEC oil-producing countries.

Notably, the next meeting of the JMMC (54th) is scheduled for June 1, 2024.
