Saudi Arabia Think-Tank Reportedly Studying Possible Effect Of OPEC Break Up

Saudi Arabia’s top government-funded think-tank is studying the possible effects on oil markets of a breakup of OPEC, the Wall Street Journal reported Nov. 8, citing people familiar with the matter.

The research project doesn’t reflect an active debate inside the government over whether to leave OPEC in the near term, the Journal reported.

OPEC was not immediately available for comment.
