Speaking to CNN Money, Mohammad Barkindo, the secretary general of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, said extraordinary moves to limit global oil supplies would be bad for the global economy. OPEC market share now stands at 32.6% but could go in either direction depending on the cartel's response to Iranian barrels coming offline later in the year.

Non-Opec production remained flat for the second month at 58.6 million barrel per day in March because of higher production from the U.S. and the North Sea region, which was offset by other non-Opec members.
