OPEC Secretary General Subroto said today that oil prices have hit bottom and he ruled out emergency OPEC talks to prevent any further declines. Subroto said the OPEC reference basket of seven crudes averaged $14.24 a barrel in the first week of June. The target price of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries for this basket is $18. "We feel $14.24 is more or less the bottom already," he told an oil conference in Singapore by telephone from OPEC headquarters in Vienna.

OPEC Secretary General Subroto said Monday that he will ask Iran to allow its war foe Iraq to have an oil output quota equal to its own in a bid to restore order to the cartel. Subroto said he will fly to Iran in the final week of August, after a scheduled cease-fire in the eight-year war is due to take effect, to ask for Iran's support in allowing a higher quota. Iran has refused to let Iraq have a quota equal to its own of 2.37 million barrels daily.

In a communique released at the conclusion of the meeting, the oil ministers also said it was essential that a joint meeting of the price committee and its long-term strategy committee be held to review existing OPEC strategies and objectives.

OPEC Did Not Break Ceiling, Official Says: OPEC stayed close to its March output ceiling, the cartel's secretary general said, rebutting independent reports that overproduction totaled about 700,000 barrels daily.
