Iran Aims to Keep Oil Exports Flowing Despite US Sanctions

"Opec and non-Opec countries participating in the Declaration of Cooperation remain unwavering in their commitment to contribute to market stability, in the interests of producers, consumers and the global economy", Mazrouei said in a statement.

The Wall Street Journal in turn cited a high-ranking Saudi official as saying that Riyadh made no concrete promises to Trump but assured him of its ability to satisfy the market's demands.

Trump is pressuring allies to stop buying Iranian oil as a tactic to make Iranian leaders negotiate a new nuclear deal, after he pulled out of the 2015 agreement two months ago.

Trump was not specific on whether the additional 2 million barrels was a per-day figure - but worldwide daily demand is nearing 100 million bpd. "So in the options market, the volatility gets bid up", he told the Reuters Global Oil Forum. Iran, however, said it would be tough to erase its oil completely from the market by November, when US sanctions snap back into place.

"Banking sanctions will also snap back on November 4, and we will be aggressively enforcing these provisions to lock up Iran's assets overseas and deny the Iranian regime access to its hard currency".

"We will surely do something to thwart the USA rallying cry that Iranian oil must be stemmed", First Vice President Eshagh Jahangiri said in statements broadcast on state television.

U.S. President Donald Trump has urged Saudi Arabia to increase its oil output amidst the U.S. upcoming sanctions against the energy sector of the Islamic republic.

Iran is among the nations with the highest oil serves, along with Saudi Arabia, which is the world's leading exporter of oil.

Venezuelan production fell to 1.36 million bpd by June, compared to just under 2.5 million bpd at the start of a year ago, amid a structural underinvestment in the country.

This was due to outages around the world from Libya to Canada and Venezuela are keeping priced elevated.

The president also had tough words for other U.S. allies.

"Yes, of course. That's what we're doing".
