Oil and fuel oil hedging market update

12 Sep 2017 08:23 GMT

By the Oil Desk at Freight Investor Services.



By the Oil Desk at Freight Investor Services Ltd.

Early this morning Brent was down $5 cents, or 0.1 percent, at $53.79 per barrel by 0247 GMT from the previous close and U.S. WTI crude was down $4 cents, or 0.1 percent, at $48.03 a barrel. As Hurricane Irma continues inland, refineries in the Gulf are slowly starting to come back online - including the largest U.S. refinery, Motiva Enterprises. With the storms having moved off, we can now start to see more clearly the effects that it has had on refining and U.S. production and stock levels. Early indicators report that we are going to see a 2.3 million barrel rise in crude stocks to be reported on Wednesday by the EIA. Not really a surprising outcome of all the disruption that has been caused; in some ways we're surprised it's not higher, but let's see what 'finger-in-the-air' value the API reports in its stats tonight. It would probably be more accurate asking your nan what level she thinks they will be.

North Korea has managed to avoid a complete ban on its oil industry, which currently imports 2.2 million barrels, but this has been limited to 2 million barrels, and there has been a ban on importing gas liquids and condensates. Much of these imports are coming from China, so it's no surprise that the U.S. was pushing for their total ban. Saudi Arabia has reduced its targets for the National Transformation Program, which aims to diversify the country's investments. So guess that means the Saudis are going to be extra keen to keep prices as supported as possible until they are able to deliver their 'Vision 2030' program. Coincidence about the announcement on extending the cut agreement yesterday.
