Can OPEC Keep Its Nerve? |

"The recent OPEC agreement to extend production cuts for a further nine months has had a mixed response from industry commentators.

For some, it’s an example of OPEC’s new steadfastness and unity of purpose, whereas for others it’s a deal likely to have little impact on bloated oil inventories and the current oil price. For such critics, other, more influential factors are in play undermining OPEC’s influence – American shale production, for example.
