Market watchers attributed the development to the continued efforts of the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to achieve stability in the volatile market.

In an email to Vanguard, OPEC stated that the meeting of its members - Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Qatar, Indonesia, Libya, United Arab Emirates, Algeria, Nigeria, Ecuador, Gabon, Angola, Equatorial Guinea, and Congo - to review the market would take place in Vienna, Austria on December 5, 2019.
