OPEC has canceled accreditation for reporters from The Wall Street Journal, Reuters and Bloomberg News to cover a conference in Vienna, reports Emma Ross-Thomas of Bloomberg News.
Ross-Thomas reports that the conference “will feature the head of BP Plc and the European Union’s top energy official.”
“‘We are very concerned by the prospect of OPEC excluding certain journalists, including from Bloomberg, from next week’s seminar,’ Bloomberg News said in a statement. ‘For the sake of market transparency, we strongly advocate for OPEC to allow journalists from relevant global news outlets to attend.'”
