Speaking to reporters on arrival in Vienna for talks with OPEC, Novaksaid the decision "corresponds to the proposals which were worked out" atThursday's meeting of the OPEC/non-OPEC monitoring committee, on which hesits.

"It corresponds to today's ideas of what needs to be done on the market,"Novak said. "I think at this stage 1 million barrels is reasonable."

Saudi energy minister Khalid al-Falih said Friday the deal would resultin a nominal output boost of "just under 1 million b/d" from the 24-countrycollective, while other ministers estimated that the real increase wouldamount to between 600,000 to 800,000 b/d.
