Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 1
By Maksim Tsurkov – Trend:
Azerbaijan’s Energy Minister Natig Aliyev can participate in OPEC’s Dec. 9 meeting with non-OPEC countries, Energy Ministry has said in a message.
Aliyev will take part in the meeting in case a relevant invitation is received and it is decided that participation is expedient.
“I believe the meeting will determine volume of production cut by non-OPEC countries. Azerbaijan is ready to accept suggestions that will be put forward and give momentum for increasing the oil prices,” the minister said commenting on the issue, according to the message.
The second meeting of the OPEC High-level Committee with non-OPEC oil producing countries, which was scheduled for Nov. 28, did not take place because of Saudi Arabia’s refusal to participate in it.
Azerbaijan’s Energy Minister Natig Aliyev was also expected to take part in that meeting.
Six non-OPEC countries participated in the technical meeting on October 29, including Azerbaijan, Brazil, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Oman and Russia.
