NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Kinder Morgan (KMI) - Get Report shares are rallying by 3.91% to $14.74 on Tuesday morning, as oil futures were rising on optimism that the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and non-OPEC producers may be nearing a deal to combat market saturation.

Crude oil (WTI) is jumping by 1.48% to $30.79 per barrel and Brent crude is hiking by 2.07% to $31.13 per barrel, according to the index.

Despite OPEC calling for rivals to slash supply, Russia is not cooperating, Reuters added.

"Without a production agreement, fundamentals point to lower numbers," David Hufton of oil brokers PVM told Reuters

Additionally, there are persisting concerns that Iraq may increase its oil production this year.
