LAGOS (Reuters) - OPEC will increase production to keep oil prices at a level customers can afford, Nigeria's NNPC chief and OPEC country representative Mele Kyari said on Wednesday.

"The only way to pull down the price is to increase the production, for you to increase the supply," Kyari said during an interview on local news channel Arise TV. "And that is what is going to happen. OPEC is going to intervene."
