With soaring USA production threatening to undo a large part of their cuts, the cartel and allies may have to consider if the time has come for them to start defending their market share, or if they should stick to the cuts in the name of higher oil prices in order to get more oil revenues in budgets and boost the valuation of Saudi Aramco for the IPO now planned for the second half of 2018.

Futures in NY fell from the settlement yesterday after the American Petroleum Institute was said to have reported United States crude stockpiles expanded by 933,000 barrels last week. The decision was approved in July by OPEC and non-OPEC producers led by Russian Federation. Analysts had expected an increase of 2.1 million barrels.
This is coming as the International Energy Agency (IEA) has predicted that the United States would overtake Russian Federation as the world's biggest oil producer by 2019 at the latest, as the country's shale oil boom continues to upend global markets.

"As a result, in January WTI prices rose as high as US$66 per barrel for the first time since December 2014, before declining slightly in February".
