The rising oil production preceded a historic agreement signed by Russia and Saudi Arabia on Sept. 5 on the sidelines of the G20 summit in the Chinese city of Hangzhou to stabilize oil prices.
Under the deal, the two countries will form a working group to monitor the market and draft recommendations to stabilize oil prices and ensure steady investment in the industry.
