Antoine Halff writes that market perceptions of OPEC's predicament as it approaches the Vienna meeting--to extend production cuts, raise prices and give the shale industry more support versus unshackling its exports to flood the market and lower oil prices--diverges from reality, and in the short term, the threat of U.S. shale might not be quite as dire as it seems.
