OPEC, Non-OPEC Countries Study Venezuela's Oil Summit Proposal


DOHA, Sept 10 (Reuters) - OPEC and non-OPEC countries are studying a Venezuelan proposal for a heads-of-state summit to address low oil prices, the energy minister of Qatar said on Thursday.

"The different countries are studying this proposal and if there was a response from OPEC and outside OPEC then OK," Qatar's Mohammed al-Sada said. "But we are in the study phase."

OPEC member Venezuela has been campaigning for action to address low oil prices, which at below $48 a barrel are less than half their level of June 2014. Sada is the alternate president of OPEC this year.
