ISTANBUL – Nigeria’s oil minister is unable to attend the OPEC and non-OPEC ministerial monitoring committee meeting in Russia in July, Kuwait Oil Minister Essam al-Marzouq told reporters on Monday.

“We extended the invitation but unfortunately there is a previous commitment for the Nigerian oil minister as I heard today,” he told reporters when asked whether Nigeria will join the committee meeting set for July 24 in St Petersburg.

Marzouq added that Nigeria will probably be asked to join the technical committee’s meeting, which comes before the ministerial meeting, to talk about its oil production plans.
