epa05152583 (FILE) A file photo dated 13 September 2010 showing an exterior view of the headquarters of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in Vienna, Austria. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) increased its total oil production by 131,000 barrels per day (bpd) in January even though oversupply has been a major reason for falling oil prices, according to data issued by the cartel on 10 February 2016. The Vienna-based group of mostly Arab, African and Latin American countries said that they pumped 32.3 million bpd last month. This was 1.8 million bpd above the projected average demand for OPEC oil in the first quarter, the group's monthly oil market report showed. Saudi Arabia and other Arab members of OPEC have so far stopped the group from propping up prices by lowering output, in an apparent effort to use the current slump to win market shares from the US, where oil production is costlier than in the Gulf.
