Goldman Sachs said it is possible to freeze oil production

OPEC and oil producers outside the cartel, at an informal meeting in September to agree on the freezing of oil production, according to analysts of the Bank Goldman Sachs. But they warn that the freezing of production may not lead to the restoration of balance in the oil market, as it will continue to manufacture at record levels, according to Bloomberg.

According to analysts, possible freezing of production can be “counterproductive” for OPEC, if will lead to further growth and increased supplies of other producers. More effective for restoring balance in the oil market would be the resolution of the conflicts that have affected production in some regions, the report of the Bank dated 22 Aug.

A possible conclusion of the agreement after the failure of previous negotiations, according to analysts Goldman Sachs, will demonstrate the willingness to cooperate of the new Minister of oil of Saudi Arabia. At the same time, analysts doubt that Saudi Arabia and Iran will agree to unilateral freezing of oil production, as both countries continue to struggle to keep and increase its share of the oil market in the face of continued growth in oil demand.

In the continuing rivalry of OPEC indicated Monday the experts of the Bank Morgan Stanley. According to their findings, this competition creates too many obstacles and logistical problems” for the conclusion of a really meaningful agreement. Morgan Stanley to allow for the possibility that in September, countries will be able to conclude an agreement, but noted that the real impact of such agreements to market will be less than if countries agreed to a freeze in April.

Over the past months, Iran has managed to bring oil production almost to pre-sanctions levels, and oil production in Saudi Arabia in July reached a historical high.
