Oil prices rose almost 3% as OPEC agreed to a modest increase in output to compensate for losses at thh in production at a time of rising global demand. Benchmark Brent crude jumped $2.19 a barrel, or almost 3%, to a high of $75.24 before slipping to about $75 by 1305 GMT. U.S. light crude was $1.80 higher at S67.34. . The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), meeting in Vienna, agreed to re boost output from July after its de facto leader Saudi Arabia persuaded arch-rival Iran to cooperate in efforts to reduce the crude price and avoid a supply shortage. The group agreed that OPEC and its allies led by Russia should increase production by about 1 million barrels per day (bpd), or 1% of global supply e ar k h ent Smaller real increase But the real increase will be smaller because several countries that recently underproduced oil will struggle to return to full quotas while other producers will not be allowed to fill the gap. Analysts had expected OPEC to announce a real increase in production of 5,00,000 to 6,00,000 barrels per day, which would help ease tightness in the oil market without creating a glut. The effective increase in output can easily be absorbed by the market. .Oil prices have been on a roller-coaster ride over the last few years, with Brent trading above $100 a barrel for several years until 2014, dropping to almost $26 in 2016 and then recovering to more than $80 last month. tis
