Oil and fuel oil hedging market update

17 May 2017 07:42 GMT

By the Oil Desk at Freight Investor Services.



By the Oil Desk at Freight Investor Services Ltd.

Brent closed down $0.17 last night to $51.65 and WTI closed at $48.66 down $0.19. It's not too radical a view to think that the market will not rise much above $55, but Monday's news from Saudi and Russia regarding extending the production cut seems to have been awkwardly ignored like a drunk uncle at a wedding. The market is still reacting off the only real micro indicator - and that is EIA data, as that is the only tangible factor with regards to demand. Yesterday's IEA report was hardly encouraging for OPEC as the demand/supply balance still has much work to do, and even less encouraging was the fact that North Sea fields are going to ramp up by a fifth as they become more efficient. Couple this with the comment yesterday regarding DUCs and the market could, very quickly, start dismissing what OPEC do. Stats later.
