by Leslie Hayward | June 02, 2015

Why do oil analysts flock to Vienna for every OPEC meeting, even when a change in the group’s production quota is rarely expected? In this interview, Jamie Webster answers this critical question, tells us about the key issues heading into this week’s meeting, discusses the group’s tensions surrounding Russia and Iran, and more.

Stay tuned in the coming days for more clips from our interview with Webster, in which we discuss OPEC’s relationship with U.S. shale producers, and examine if we’re finally entering a free market for oil.
