4 He said that the decision would lead to improvement in market conditions, sentiments and the return of confidence and investment to the oil industry.

5 Meanwhile, the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Mr Ibe Kachikwu said that out of the expected boost, OPEC countries would contribute about 700,000 while non-OPEC countries will account for the rest.

6 “OPEC will contribute about 700,000 barrels while non-OPEC will come up with the rest.

7 “Bear in mind that this is the expectation and individual quota is going to be worked out because some countries do not have the ability to pick up the numbers,” he said.

8 Also, the Nigerian National Representative to OPEC, Mallam Mele Kyari, said that the increase was likely to deflate the market, but not at a dramatic level.

9 He predicted that the market was likely to settle between 65 dollars to 72 dollars per barrel.

10 “When you increase supply and there is no parallel increase in demand at the same time, what you should expect is a downward trend in prices.

11 “But mind you that all the reports including that of OPEC have clearly shown that there is an increase in demand.

12 “So therefore it is possible that this increase will just be enough to balance the market. Therefore, I do not see a substantial fall in prices as a result of this activity,” he said.
