The discussion between two leading economies for the world was on how oil production from UAE and Saudi Arabia is close to reaching its maximum production capacity. According to Reuters conversation between Macron and UAE leader Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan claims “UAE reaches maximum oil production status.
On the other hand, Saudi Arabia can increase production capacity by 150 thousands barrels per day. As for both OPEC nations, and per OPEC guideline the production of oil reaches its cap by the guidelines written by OPEC nations.
With the comments of Macron, crude oil prices increased by 1% during morning trade, in the Asian market. Additionally Brent crude futures oil prices jumped 0.9%, adding to the previous rise in the last session, stated by Reuters.
