Saudi Arabia calls for oil producers to extend cooperation
MUSCAT - Top oil exporter Saudi Arabia called Sunday for extending cooperation between OPEC and non-OPEC producers beyond 2018, after a deal to cut output succeeded in shoring up prices. The call, the first explicit invitation by Riyadh for long-term cooperation between oil producers , came with oil prices topping $70 a barrel thanks to the deal, after they dove below $30 a barrel in early 2016. "We should not limit our efforts to 2018. We need to be talking about a longer framework for our cooperation," Saudi Energy Minister Khaled al-Faleh told reporters before a meeting between ministers of OPEC and non-OPEC countries in the Omani capital Muscat. The meeting will be discussing levels of compliance to the cuts. Oil producers from inside and outside the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries signed a landmark agreement in November 2016 to cut output by 1.8 million barrels per day to fight oversupply and lift sagging prices. That deal was initially for six months, but the 14-member cartel and 10 independent producers have since extended it until the end of this year.

Businessmen reject over 11pc hike in POL prices
LAHORE - The business community has rejected the whopping hike of over 11 percent in petroleum prices, saying the industrial production and movement of raw materials would be costlier now. Rice Exporters Association of Pakistan chairman Samee Ullah Ch said the move will reduce the competitiveness of Pakistani goods in the international market and put the government’s initiatives in reverse for boosting exports. He said that POL price increase will also add to the complexities of the agriculture sector which is already in a bad state-of-affairs because of water scarcity and high input cost. Samee Ullah Ch said that the increase in petroleum prices would increase the input cost of agriculture production as high speed diesel is being used in tractors, tube-wells, harvesters, thrashers and other agriculture machinery. He said that the cost of thermal generation by private sector will also go up. The REAP chairman said that government is producing huge amount of electricity through thermal means and after increase in petroleum prices the rates of electricity would touch new highs.
