The Iranian Petroleum Minister is expected to leave Tehran for Moscow on Sunday.
Zangeneh will hold meetings with Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Alexander Novak and Russian Minister of Energy Nikolay Shulginov in the upcoming visit to discuss the most recent developments in the global oil market.
The oil and energy ministers of members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and non-OPEC allies, known collectively as OPEC+, have agreed recently to increase production by 500,000 barrels per day beginning in January 2021. They have also decided to hold monthly meetings in the coming months to discuss a further rise in output.
The current production cut of 7.7 million bpd by the OPEC+ will change in January 2021, as the new increase in oil output will bring the total production cuts to 7.2 million bpd.
Iran, Venezuela, and Libya are exempt from output cuts.
