The oil production freeze could be secured by two agreements, one between the members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and the other between the cartel and non-OPEC oil producers, Algerian Energy Minister Noureddine Bouterfa told Sputnik.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – OPEC member states are expected to renew talks on a possible oil output freeze with non-member states at the September 26-28 International Energy Forum (IEF) in Algiers, Algeria.

"It is possible that there may be a chance to reach an agreement at the meeting in Algeria. One agreement between OPEC member states and the other agreement with countries which are not OPEC members," Bouterfa said.
