I don’t see why this should make prices go up. If they are leaving maybe they want to pump more than OPEC allows them to pump.
Qatar wants to increase their output of natural gas according to this article.
Agreed. This seems good news of the energy markets having busted out beyond OPEC.
No OPEC country binds itself by OPEC edicts if it goes against their self-interest, ever.
IE, they all cheat.
I’m thinking they left because they figure they will eventually be duking it out with Saudi Arabia
