The agreement sees the 23-member OPEC+ grouping raise output by 400,000 barrels per day (bpd) each month from August, the statement said, to help fuel a global economic recovery as the pandemic eases.

"Adjust upward their overall production by 0.4 mb/d on a monthly basis starting August 2021 until phasing out the 5.8 mb/d production adjustment, and in December 2021 assess market developments and Participating Countries' performance," the statement said.
