OPEC, Russia seen easing oil production cuts from August - sources

The sources said no discussions have taken place so far about extending the cuts into August

  

LONDON- OPEC and Russia will likely ease record oil production cuts from August as global oil demand recovers and prices have bounced back from their lows, four OPEC+ sources told Reuters.

OPEC and its allies including Russia, know as OPEC+, have agreed to cut production by a record 9.7 million barrels per day, or 10 percent of global demand, from May for two months and then extended the duration of the cut into July.

The sources said no discussions have taken place so far about extending the cuts into August, meaning they were most likely to be eased to 7.7 million bpd.
