The oil market was buoyed at the end of November 2016 by confirmation from OPEC that they would cut their production in 2017. This represents the first production cut from OPEC since 2008, and marks a reversal of their decision to pursue market share over price, taken in late 2014. The OPEC action is supported by cuts from various non-OPEC producers, notably Russia.
