Saudi Arabia fully expects OPEC members and allied producers to agree to an extension to supply cuts on Thursday.

Ahead of an announcement over oil output policy later in the day, Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih told CNBC that OPEC’s consensus was “almost complete,” before adding he did not anticipate an exit to the deal in the first six months of 2018.
