According to the Council of the Economic Commission (OPEC Advisory Body), if the United States, United Kingdom, India, South Korea, Japan will release 66 million barrels from stocks of 66 million barrels, then the excess may increase by 1.1 million barrels per day. Then it will reach 2.3 million barrels per day in January and 3.7 million in February. Some countries stated that they can cancel the production planned for January.
