In Vienna, not all of the important conversations on oil will take place in the OPEC summit conference rooms. Some may take place in the adjacent stairwell. That’s right, the stairs usually serve as a holding pen for analysts and journalists and it has reached cult status at OPEC meetings. It’s where all the whispering, speculation and tweeting takes place until doors are flung open and the group can reach oil ministers for interviews. It’s a funny, if undignified, part of the OPEC meeting.
