OPEC and its allies continued to haggle over the size of potential crude-production cuts in Vienna Wednesday as U.S. President Donald Trump urged the group to keep the taps open and prices down.In an interview Tuesday, Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said it was "premature" to suggest the OPEC group which includes allies Russia and Kazakhstan would agree to curtail output. That's less bullish than his call a month ago for 1 million barrels a day of cuts. Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said his discussion with Falih Wednesday morning was "good," but added there'd be more talks ahead for OPEC members. Both Falih and Novak will attend that meeting, a day ahead of the full OPEC gathering on Dec 6 .OPEC is discussing possible output curbs for three to six months, Oman's Rumhy told reporters in Vienna. The kingdom is currently pumping 11 million to 11.2 million barrels of oil a day, Falih said.
