Opec’s compliance with oil curbs rises in March as UAE joins cut’. Opec oil output is likely to fall for a third straight month in March, a Reuters survey found on Wednesday, as the UAE made progress in trimming supplies while maintenance and unrest cut production in exempt nations Nigeria and Libya. The reduction by the UAE has helped boost Opec compliance this month with its production-cutting deal to 95%, up from an initial February estimate of 94% and a record high, according to Reuters surveys. The Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries pledged to reduce output by about 1.2mn bpd from January 1, the first accord on supply curbs since 2008. Non-Opec countries pledged to cut about half as much.
