At the end of a day of diplomatic back-and-forth in Vienna on Wednesday, delegates were increasingly positive that a deal would be reached at Friday's meeting of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries.
MINISTER of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources Khalid Al-Falih said in Vienna on Thursday increasing oil supply by 1 million barrels per day would be a good target as the Organization of the Oil Exporting Countries and allies such as Russian Federation meet in Vienna this week.
Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al Falih, asked whether he expected an easy meeting on Friday, said: "We will find out".

So far there is no indication that Iran and the other members would agree to such a reallocation, although with officials holding extensive talks in the run-up to Friday's Opec meeting, further compromise could be made.
"Consumers are asking for more supply in the second half", said Saudi Arabia's Al-Falih.
The move comes amid soaring crude prices and output disruptions in several member countries, including Venezuela, Iran and Angola.
Domestic crude oil production falls by 2.95%.
For Opec, over-compliance with its supply-cutting deal is a nice problem to have.
