TABLE-OPEC oil output rises 20,000 bpd in December - Reuters survey

LONDON, Jan 5 (Reuters) - The following table shows OPEC crude oil output in millions of barrels per day (bpd) in December and November, according to a Reuters survey published on Friday. In an effort to prop up prices, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries started reducing output by about 1.20 million bpd on Jan. 1 2017 in its first supply cut since 2008. Nigeria and Libya were exempted from the curbs. The December survey indicates output from the 13 OPEC members originally part of the deal rose by 20,000 bpd. Supply from the 11 members with production targets under the original accord fell by 30,000 bpd. Compared with levels from which they agreed to cut, which in most cases was October 2016 output, the 11 members have reduced production by 1.488 million bpd of the pledged 1.164 million bpd. That equates to 128 percent compliance, up from a revised 125 percent in November. November's total was revised lower by 90,000 bpd because of downward revisions to estimated production in Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Venezuela, and an increase in Nigeria. Equatorial Guinea joined OPEC in May. Totals in the table below are rounded.

R = Revised

* Compliance is calculated by the following method in the table above: Baseline for cut minus December output = cut achieved Cut achieved divided by pledged cut = percentage compliance

** Iran is allowed a small increase in the deal.

*** OPEC target based on the 32.50 million bpd ceiling OPEC announced on Nov. 30, 2016, minus Indonesia and using reference production figures listed in an internal OPEC document for Libya and Nigeria.

**** Equatorial Guinea is required to limit output but OPEC has not published a production target for Equatorial Guinea or an updated overall target since it became an OPEC member. The Reuters survey aims to assess crude supply to market, defined to exclude movements to, but not sales from, storage. Saudi and Kuwaiti data includes the Neutral Zone. Venezuelan data includes upgraded synthetic oil. Nigerian output includes the Agbami stream and excludes Akpo condensate.
