The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries’ (OPEC) oil output in December rose by 280,000 barrels per day (bpd) to 25.69 million led by higher supplies from Libya and the United Arab Emirate, a Reuters survey showed on Wednesday.

“OPEC states’ compliance to OPEC+ output cut pledges was 99% in December, down from 102% in November,” Reuters further noted and added that Saudi Arabia kept its oil supply steady in just below 9 million bpd in December.
