According to a recent S&P survey, OPEC+ oil outputs have increased in August, as production cuts ease to 7.7 million b/d for the rest of the year from August on. The rise in oil output has been led by an increase in production by Saudi Arabia, Russia and the UAE. While Saudi Arabia remained under its quota, Russia and the UAE went over their cap. To make up the difference, UAE’s ADNOC said it will lower its October term allocations by 30% to make up for the excess output.
