NEW DELHI (Reuters) - OPEC Secretary-General Mohammad Barkindo said on Thursday that he sees the global oil market rebalancing in the second to third quarters of 2018, earlier than a previous forecast of the year-end.
Russia will continue to play a key role in future market rebalancing pacts, Barkindo said.
"There is growing confidence that the declaration of cooperation will be extended beyond 2018," Barkindo told Reuters.
"Russia will continue to play a leading role."
