Recently, there has been a surge in coronavirus infections in the United States, bringing the total number of cases in the United States to more than 3 million, reducing hopes of a rapid recovery in oil demand. Oil demand has been hit by global blockades to prevent the spread of the virus.

Under the current arrangement, the production reduction agreement will last until the end of July, and then the production reduction will begin to shrink.
