OPEC Looks to Add More Members to the Alliance

The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries is looking to add more producers to the alliance, according to the organization’s Secretary-General Haitham al-Ghais.

The Secretary General told reporters on Wednesday when asked if the group is trying to recruit more members with a short reply “I am, yes.”

Ecuador is seen as the top prospect after the exit in 2020 because of political circumstances. However, the group sent an invitation in May for Ecuador to rejoin the alliance. 

OPEC has 13 members, mostly countries in the Middle East, North and West Africa and South America.
