UAE rejects ‘unfair’ OPEC+ output deal

The United Arab Emirates criticizes the current oil production deal among OPEC+ alliance members as “unfair,” offering to extend the agreement only if its production is reviewed.

In a row that could put at risk the energy market’s post-coronavirus recovery, the UAE’s push to increase its production baseline has reportedly derailed last week’s meeting of the alliance of oil-producing countries.

The UAE on Friday raised a last-minute objection to the Russian-Saudi Arabia deal and has reportedly insisted on having its baseline lifted by 0.6 million barrels per day to 3.8 million.
