OPEC and Russia will discuss record oil output cuts on Thursday to support prices hammered by the coronavirus crisis but talks are complicated by internal disagreements and the reluctance of the United States to join in any action. Benchmark Brent crude oil prices hit an 18-year low last month and are trading around $34 a barrel, half their level at the end of 2019, dealing a severe blow to budgets of oil producing nations and high-cost U.S. shale oil industry. U.S. President Donald Trump said last week a deal he had brokered with OPEC leader Saudi Arabia and Russia could lead to cuts of 10 million to 15 million barrels per day (bpd), or 10% to 15% of global supplies, an unprecedented reduction.
