The Opec+ cartel of oil-producing nations has announced a production cut of two million barrels per day. It is a big and dramatic move from the grouping which accounts for around 44% of global oil production. Although expectations had been growing in recent days of a major cut - first one million barrels, then one and a half and then two - it is nonetheless a loud message from Opec+ (Opec and allies such as Russia) that the fall in oil prices since May has gone too far and needs to be addressed.
