Technical experts from OPEC and independent oil-producing countries failed to agree on cutbacks in the non-OPEC nations' oil production, but officials said several options on stabilizing prices were put forward for consideration by individual governments.

Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries Secretary-General Subroto, trying to put the best face on the second round of negotiations between the world's major oil producers in the last nine months, said Thursday there was full cooperation between the two sides.Subroto said delegates to the 10-hour meeting would now relay proposals for stabilizing world oil markets to their governments.

He said subsequent to those conversations that a meeting at the ministerial level would be convened, but he declined to say when it would take place.
