Following the 4th meeting of the Joint OPEC-Non-OPEC Ministerial Monitoring Committee (JMMC) in St. Petersburg, Russia, on 24 July 2017, the Joint OPEC-Non-OPEC Technical Committee (JTC) has been instructed to convene with some OPEC member countries as well as some non-OPEC participating countries to identify ways and means of raising levels of conformity.

This is a technical meeting being held to better understand the difficulties and obstacles faced by some OPEC and non-OPEC participating countries and to assess how conformity levels can be improved with the goal of achieving a faster rebalanced global oil market, for the benefit of producers and consumers alike.

The participating OPEC and non-OPEC producing countries achieved a conformity level of 98 percent in June 2017.
