VIENNA (Reuters) -Saudi Arabia will make a deep cut to its output in July on top of a broader OPEC+ deal to limit supply into 2024 as the group seeks to boost flagging oil prices. "This is a Saudi lollipop," Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz told a news conference. OPEC+, which groups the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies led by Russia, pumps around 40% of the world's crude, meaning its policy decisions can have a major impact on oil prices.
By the time you read this, OPEC would have probably decided, even announced, new production levels meant to seize pricing of oil back from the hands of short-sellers who’ve driven the group nuts this year in trying to keep a barrel at $80 or more. Oil revenue is the lifeblood of the economies in OPEC, or the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, a 13-member Saudi-led group whose main objective is to be the price-setter of the commodity. Ten other oil-producing states, including Russia, that aren’t OPEC members also keep their output closely in line with the group’s for the sake of price.

Here's why I believe oil prices appear poised to rally and why Chevron is my oil stock of choice to profit from that thesis.
Canadian Defence Minister Anita Anand said on Saturday that the country's critical infrastructure was increasingly being targeted by cyberattacks, posing a significant threat to the economy of the world's fourth-largest crude oil producer.

In an interview on the sidelines of an Asian security summit in Singapore, Anand said there had been an increase in cyberattacks across North America, although she did not attribute the strikes to any state-sponsored actors.
