Saudi to slash oil exports by 800,000 bpd: Minister

OPEC kingpin Saudi Arabia will slash its oil exports in January by 10 percent compared to November, the energy minister said Wednesday.

Khalid al-Falih said the kingdom, the world's top crude supplier, would cut its output to 7.2 million barrels per day in January, from 8.0 million bpd in November, with a further 100,000 bpd cut in February.

OPEC and its allies decided last month to cut their overall output by 1.2 million bpd starting January to shore up sliding prices.
