VIENNA, Jun 20 (PRIME) -- Participants of the OPEC+ oil output reduction deal will set a new goal at a meeting in Vienna on Saturday as the initial global target of oil and oil products reserves has been reached, Russian First Deputy Energy Minister Alexei Teksler said on Wednesday.

УThe target was set. It was reached long ago. It is about average reserves in five years. Now we need to define a new target and we should do it in a dialogue with all participants, both OPEC and non-OPEC states. I am sure such an agreement will be reached at a meeting on June 23,Ф he said.

Teksler also said that Russia is ready to discuss other countriesТ proposals to increase oil production quotas under the OPEC+ agreement to come to a compromise, but it still has its own position.

УRussia will of course negotiate (proposals) of its colleagues, but we also have our own position. We will discuss it as well,Ф he said.

Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh said that returning to 100% implementation of the OPEC+ agreement is acceptable. УYes, this is one of the ways,Ф he said.

On Tuesday, Zanganeh said that he did not support the idea of even a slight increase of oil production as softening of the OPEC+ deal. He was also sure that the dealТs participants would be unable to come to an agreement.

Earlier in June, RussiaТs Energy Minister Alexander Novak said that Russia and Saudi Arabia will suggest raising the output to 1.5 million barrels per day in JulyЦSeptember, and making a further decision in September basing on the market situation.

In November 2016, OPEC and non-OPEC states agreed to reduce their oil production to rebalance the market. Russia joined the agreement in December 2016 with a promise to cut output by 300,000 barrels daily compared with the level of October 2016. The agreement was prolonged until the end of 2018 in November 2017.
