  6. 6. OPEC and Oil Prices • The U.S. Energy Information Administration on Wednesday said U.S. crude inventories declined by 3 million barrels in the week ended Sept. 30, falling for the fifth straight week. It was another sign that demand is catching up with the oversupply of crude that caused prices to collapse in 2014. • But the OPEC deal took oil-market observers by surprise after two years of indecision from the cartel. Analysts said it raised the question of whether Saudi Arabia was reversing its policy of fighting for market share in the era of low crude prices. • According to the people familiar with the matter, Prince Mohammed didn’t authorize a sea change in Saudi Arabia’s market- share strategy. While Saudi Arabia will take on the bulk of OPEC’s proposed cuts, slashing up to 400,000 barrels a day by the end of the year, the kingdom was planning to make those cuts anyway, the people said. • Saudi energy minister Khalid al-Falih could only offer to bring the kingdom down from record highs this summer to more sustainable levels that were pumped in the spring, the people said.
