OPEC members have a separate meeting planned on Monday to choose a new top official, with delegates saying that Haitham al-Ghais of Kuwait -- the only candidate formally nominated so far -- enjoys widespread support for the position. If approved, al-Ghais would succeed current Secretary-General Mohammad Barkindo, who will conclude six years in the post in July. 

“He’s very smart, and a good analyst,” said Johannes Benigni, chairman of JBC Energy Group in Vienna.
