According to the new deal signed, "OPEC and non-OPEC countries combined will take a cut of around 1.2 mln barrels of [oil] production per day starting from January compared to October 2018,” Novak said.

OPEC countries will cut production by 0.8 mln barrels per day, as Officer in Charge of the OPEC Public Relations and Information department Tofol Al-Nasr said. Non-OPEC countries agreed to cut production by 0.4 mln barrels per day combined.

Russia is to have two per cent cut, which is estimated at 'around 228 thousand barrels [per day]', Novak stated. It will take several months due to 'climate and technological circumstances.' The deal would be valid from January 2019 for six months.
