Balance in global oil markets takes precedence over the crude price, Kuwait’s new oil minister said on Sunday.

Asked whether 100 dollars a barrel was a good price for oil, Ali al-Omair told reporters at a reception: “The issue of balance comes before the issue of price.”

Omair, who was appointed last week, said OPEC member Kuwait targets 3.5 million barrels per day capacity by 2015.
