Venezuela has officially consented to the oil market stabilisation agreement drawn up during the 19th ministerial meeting of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC and its allies (OPEC+).

“Venezuela ratified at the 19th OPEC+ ministerial meeting its commitment to the historic agreement that guarantees in the long term and in a sustained manner the stability of the world oil market,”  Venezuela Oil Minister Tareck El Aissami said.

The Minister added that OPEC+ “reaffirms its unequivocal position on the foundations of a stable and balanced oil market in the interest of producers, consumers, and the world economy”.

He said that the consensus reached at the meeting demonstrates a long-term strategic vision, adding that it promotes “balance in the oil market and the economic development of the world”.

In March, OPEC+ members signed an agreement on the stability of the world oil market that aimed for efficient supply and fair return on invested capital.
