Oil prices fall as USA drilling continues to rise

Parmenio Sano | 20 Giugno, 2017, 01:23

In the meantime, the "Opec 2017 year-to-date exports are only down by 0.3 million barrels per day (bpd) from the October 2016 baseline", analysts at AB Bernstein wrote.

What is surprising to many is that earlier this year, Oil seemed to have almost everything going in its favor with OPEC cutting production, geopolitical tensions and economic data strong enough to get the Federal Reserve in hiking mode.

Investment bank Goldman Sachs said if the U.S. rig count holds, fourth-quarter domestic oil production would rise substantially.

With oil prices dropping below $45, losing all the gains from the Organisation of the Petroleum Countries (Opec) output cut, crude markets are in for some real, fundamental, trouble.

Brent futures for August fell 46 cents, or 1%, to settle at $46.91 a barrel, their lowest since 29 November, the day before Opec agreed to cut output for the first six months of 2017.

The oil stock is high, higher than what it was when the oil organization had started its production cuts and supplies.

BCS analyst Ivan Kopeikin believes that the overall situation cannot affect the market.

On the other hand, Russian oil company Lukoil previously mentioned in its forecasts for the next 10 years the price of oil at the level of $50 per barrel.

"Inventory levels remain stubbornly high", he said. Rig counts have increased for a record 22 weeks straight as shale producers have boosted output, according to data from Baker Hughes Inc.


US drillers increased the rig count by six to 747, the highest level since April 2015, according to Baker Hughes.

US production is expected to continue rising along with other non-OPEC producers in 2018, outpacing the expected demand increase.

According to the Minister, the extension of the agreement aimed at stabilizing prices and will favorably affect the balance of payments of oil-producing States.

Prices will probably test $40 a barrel if we see a weak gasoline demand number and crude draws don't exceed 5 million barrels in the next release of USA inventory data on June 21, Brent Belote, founder of Cayler Capital LLC, said by telephone. EIA recently forecasted that production is set to rise by 920,000 barrels in 2017.

The return of West African and Libyan crude "could be a reason for the build in the North Sea", said Jorge Antequera, a crude oil market analyst at Kpler. In August, the cartel produced 33,174 million barrels., and in September - 33,394 million barrels. a day.

But the production in 75,47 million barrels./day and demand of 95.12 million barrels. previous year the oil market was supposed to be a clear deficit.

Attempts to reduce supply are being hampered somewhat by within Opec itself.

In the week ahead, market participants will eye fresh weekly information on US stockpiles of crude and refined products on Tuesday and Wednesday to gauge the strength of demand in the world's largest oil consumer. It is insane to expect an imaginary rise, such as a price of $120 a barrel or more in view of the tense worldwide conditions.
