OPEC expected to maintain current production
(06-10 19:13)

Kuwait expects the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries to keep the oil production ceiling unchanged so as not to alter prices, the wealthy Gulf country's oil minister said.
Asked if he believes the OPEC cartel will decide to maintain current output at its regular meeting in Vienna this week, Ali al-Omair said: ''I think yes.''
''I think that all parameters lead to keeping the production as it is and this, of course, will be reflected in (oil) prices'' remaining unchanged, Omair said outside parliament before leaving for Vienna.
He said he believes that by not changing the oil output ceiling, there will be no ''big changes'' in crude prices.
The 12-member OPEC, which supplies about one-third of the world's crude, is pumping around 30 million barrels of oil daily.
OPEC is also satisfied with current price levels at around US$100 (HK$780) a barrel.--AFP
