According to Reuters calculations, Russia's cut from the October level reached 100,000 bpd in February, resulting in compliance of just 33 percent.
A Reuters' survey indicates that the exporter group has boosted already strong compliance to around 94 percent. Interestingly, this price level, according to unnamed OPEC sources, is considered sufficient to discourage US shale producers from building production further. Angola, among the most compliant members in January, failed to meet its target in February after the start-up of two oil projects.
US production rose 0.3% to 9.032 million barrels per day, hitting the highest level in almost a year. The non-OPEC members who had supported the cuts have achieved 60 percent compliance at the moment.

According to the latest data available, at the end of January its production was still 130,000 bpd above this quota.
