OPEC is unlikely to change its production ceiling when the group meets in June, Iran's Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh said on Sunday, according to the semi-official Mehr news agency.

Malaysian state energy firm Petronas said on May 22 it made a net profit of 11.4 billion ringgit ($3.18 billion) in the first quarter - more than 7 billion ringgit lower than the same period last year - due to the slump in global oil prices. In the first quarter of 2014, Petronas, the single largest revenue contributor to the Malaysian government, posted an 18.8 billion ringgit profit.
Austrian energy group OMV said on May 18 it was unlikely to resume production in war-torn Libya or Yemen before winter, after headline profit fell by half as low oil prices weighed on its upstream business.

We will continue to be active in Singapore and in China and are committed to growing our business and supporting customers in this region," a Cargill spokeswoman said.
The world's fossil fuel reserves cannot be burned unless some way is found to capture their carbon emissions, Royal Dutch Shell Plc Chief Executive Officer Ben van Beurden said on Friday.
