-- OPEC+ hikes June output by 540,000 bpd amid higher demand for crude

OPEC and its allies added 540,000 bpd of crude in June to a market hungry for oil as summer kicked off, according to the latest S&P Global Platts survey.
OPEC’s 13 members pumped 26.19 mbd in June, up 480,000 bpd from May, mostly due to Saudi Arabia’s continued unwinding of its voluntary extra production cut.
The group’s nine non-OPEC partners, led by Russia, produced 13.27 mbd, a rise of 60,000 bpd from May.
Despite the production gains, higher quotas for the month meant OPEC+ compliance was at 110.16% compared to 111.45% in May, the survey found.

He said the ultimate goal of the Iraqi people’s resistance is to compel the occupying forces to leave the country to implement the parliament’s law.
