- In a Brexit or Trump-style shock to the markets, OPEC defied expectations with an agreement that actually has some teeth to it. The cartel will cut its collective output from just over 33.6 million barrels per day (mb/d) to 32.5 mb/d.
- Russia will also cut 300,000 barrels per day, although a Russian official said the cuts would take effect gradually. Non-OPEC producers will cut a combined 600,000 barrels per day as part of the agreement.
- The 1.2 mb/d cut from OPEC and the 0.6 mb/d cut from non-OPEC will lead to a global supply deficit as soon as early 2017.
