How will Brent react to OPEC-JMMC meetings?

How will Brent react to OPEC-JMMC meetings?


What will happen?

On Thursday, August 12, during the day members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and Joint Ministerial Monitoring Committee (JMMC) will discuss a range of issues regarding energy markets and, most importantly, agree on how much oil they will produce. The representatives from the 13 OPEC members and 11 other oil-rich nations will attend. The meetings are closed to the press, but officials usually talk with reporters throughout the day, and a formal statement covering policy shifts and meeting objectives is released after the meetings have concluded.

Members didn’t make the decision during the last OPEC-JMMC meeting on July 2. The announcement of oil production increase appeared later, on July 18, and led to a 6% Brent price drop.
