Asian equity benchmarks are trading up in the early deals on Thursday following the surge in crude oil prices overnight, in reaction to reports that OPEC members have reached a deal to cut oil production for the first time since 2008. Meanwhile, Japan's Nikkei share average rose as investors took heart from a weaker yen and rallying oil prices after OPEC's unexpected agreement to trim crude output.
