The oil ministers of the OPEC cartel are arriving in Vienna to discuss later this week whether to increase production of crude oil and help ease the price of global energy. The officials were gathering Tuesday, June 19 ahead of the official meeting Friday, when they will also confer with the representative of Russia, a non-OPEC member that has cooperated with the cartel to limit production since late 2016.
