Saudi Energy Minister Says Oil Market Is Balancing


ABU DHABI, July 10 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's energy minister said on Sunday the oil market was becoming more balanced and prices were stabilising.

Khalid al-Falih said Saudi Arabia, the world's biggest oil exporter, would always strive to stabilise the oil market, a statement by the energy ministry said on Sunday.

"In doing so, the Kingdom secures the flow of oil supplies as it retains a spare production capacity," the minister, attending a climate meeting in Berlin, was quoted as saying in the statement.

His remarks echo earlier comments made on Monday by the Saudi minister in the Saudi city of Dhahran at a meeting with newly appointed OPEC secretary general, Mohammed Barkindo.
