Moscow/Russia — Opec and non-Opec countries signed a declaration on cooperation on December 10, 2016 in Vienna. The declaration involved 24 countries reducing production by 1.8 million barrels per day over six months. The declaration was extended for another nine months in late May.

“As of the end of July 2017, the reduction in oil production amounted to 307,600 barrels per day with respect to October 2016.
