Nigeria's Minister of State for Petroleum Resources and President of the OPEC
Abu Dhabi - Arab Today

OPEC president Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu said on Tuesday that he expects an extraordinary meeting of the oil cartel in "early March" to address nosediving crude prices.

"We did say that if it (the price) hits the 35 (dollar per barrel), we will begin to look (at)... an extraordinary meeting," said Kachikwu, who is Nigerian minister for petroleum resources.

The prices have hit levels that necessitate a meeting, he told an energy forum in Abu Dhabi, but added that he not yet confirmed with fellow OPEC ministers if they would be willing to attend.

The US crude oil price tumbled below $31 a barrel Tuesday, extending a sell-off that has pushed it to more than 12-year lows amid a global supply glut, a strong dollar and tepid demand.

Saudi-led Gulf exporters within OPEC have so far refused to cut production to curb sliding prices, seeking to protect their market share despite a heavy blow to their revenues.

Kachikwu said that member states differ on the issue of intervention.
"One group feels there is a need to intervene. The other group feels even if we did, we are only 30 to 35 percent of the producers really," as 65 percent of supply comes from non-OPEC countries, he said at the Gulf Intelligence UAE Energy Forum.

"Unless you have this 65 percent (of) producers coming back to the table you really won't make any dramatic difference," he added.

US benchmark West Texas Intermediate (WTI) for February delivery was down around 2.8 percent, at $30.54 per barrel, in Asian trade on Tuesday.

European benchmark Brent North Sea crude fell 3.1 percent, to $30.57.

The last time prices were so low for WTI was in December 2003 and in April 2004 for Brent.

Prices plummeted 10 percent last week on fears about the global supply glut and weakness in China, the world's biggest energy user.
