Norway, the biggest oil producer in western Europe, said it would consider cutting its output if there was a broad international agreement to curb supply.

The Nordic nation, whose oil output is set to grow over the next few years, hasn’t been a part of coordinated international cuts to support prices since 2002. OPEC and other producing nations are due to meet next week to discuss a potential agreement, with Saudi Arabia and Russia indicating other producers needed to join for any deal to be reached.
