OPEC and Non-OPEC members agreed to 1.2 million barrel per day cut in production. The cuts will be for the first 6 months of 2019. OPEC will cut 800,000 bpd and Russia and other non-OPEC countries will cut another 400,000 bpd.
The expectations were in the 1M to 1.4M bpd range. So the number splits the difference.
