TABLE-OPEC oil output falls by 70,000 bpd in April - Reuters survey

    LONDON, April 30 (Reuters) - The following table shows OPEC crude oil output in millions of
barrels per day (bpd) in April and March, according to a Reuters survey published on Monday.

    In an effort to prop up prices, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries
started reducing output by about 1.2 million bpd on Jan. 1, 2017, in its first supply cut since
2008. Nigeria and Libya, exempt from the curbs for 2017, told OPEC their output in 2018 would
not exceed 2017 levels.
    The April survey indicates that output from the 12 OPEC members with supply reduction
targets fell by 10,000 bpd compared to revised March output, while total OPEC output dropped by
70,000 bpd.
    Compared with levels from which they agreed to cut, which in most cases was October 2016
output, the 12 members have reduced production by 1.908 million bpd. Given the pledged
reductions total 1.176 million bpd, that equates to 162 percent compliance, up from a revised
161 percent in March.
    March's OPEC total production was not revised, although estimates for Libya and Algeria were
adjusted.
    Totals in the table below are rounded.

    R = Revised
    * Compliance is calculated by the following method in the table above:
    Baseline for cut minus April output = cut achieved
    Cut achieved divided by pledged cut = percentage compliance
    ** Iran is allowed a small increase in the deal.
    *** OPEC 2018 implied target based on the 32.50 million bpd ceiling OPEC announced on Nov.
30, 2016, minus Indonesia, and using Libya and Nigeria's figures for their expected 2018
production as given at Nov. 30, 2017 meeting.
    ^ OPEC has not published a production target for Equatorial Guinea. Reuters has used the
baseline given by the International Energy Agency and pledged cut by an OPEC delegate.
    The Reuters survey aims to assess crude supply to market, defined to exclude movements to,
but not sales from, storage. Saudi and Kuwaiti data includes the Neutral Zone.
    Venezuelan data includes upgraded synthetic oil. Nigerian output includes the Agbami stream
and excludes Akpo condensate.
