The OPEC+ group, which is led by Saudi Arabia and
Russia, is set to meet within two days to discuss the matter of production.
In the previous meeting, the group decided to gear up its
oil production and agreed to meet every month to discuss the matter of pricing.
The previous year was not a good year for the oil rich
countries. The Covid-19 crisis and the fight between Saudi Arabia and Russia inflicted
serious injury to the member countries of the group.
The oil sector is presently dominated by the US, Saudi
Arabia and Russia. The US is the largest producer. At the same time, Russia and
Saudi Arabia are the second largest and third largest producers respectively.
The OPEC+ is a group led by Saudi Arabia, which is the
leader of the OPEC, and Russia, which is the leader of the rest of the
countries in the group.
The future is bright for the industry. Since the late
last year, the industry have been witnessing a steady growth.
It is high time for the OPEC+ countries to increase
its production to address the issue of scarcity.
It is hoped that the meeting can bring down the tension between Russia and Saudi Arabia.
