OPEC on Thursday held a brief extraordinary meeting to ditch the International Energy Agency from its list of trusted data contributors, an OPEC source said on Thursday.

The meeting followed a regular policy decision meeting.

Earlier this week, OPEC experts recommended ditching the IEA and choosing consultancies Rystad and Wood Mackenzie instead.
