The Republic of Congo has reiterated its commitment to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its strategic policies, following the recent decision by Angola to leave the organization.
In a LinkedIn post, Bruno Jean-Richard Itoua, Congo’s hydrocarbons minister, expressed the country’s commitment to the OPEC Secretary-General’s strategic policy.
“The Republic of Congo reaffirms its steadfast commitment to the strategic policy defined by the Secretary-General of OPEC and OPEC+,” he said.
“Congo is committed to continuing close and constructive collaboration with all member countries,” he added.
Congo, a full OPEC member since 2018, has been assigned a production target of 277,000 barrels per day (bpd) for 2024 by the oil producer group. This statement comes after Nigeria also reaffirmed its commitment to OPEC on Friday.
