    The president of the Russian LUKoil is currently in Vienna for talks with the company’s partners from the OPEC.

    VIENNA (Sputnik) — The president of Russia's oil giant LUKoil, Vagit Alekperov, told Sputnik on Wednesday he was currently in Vienna for talks with the company’s partners from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

    "Today we shall meet the Saudis, tonight [we will meet] with the acting Iraqi minister and tomorrow with Iran," Alekperov said.

    OPEC members will convene in Vienna, Austria on Thursday to discuss a plan to freeze oil production, two months after the previous attempt failed amid Saudi Arabia’s reversal.
