US inventories, supply outages and Saudi Arabia oil production

The American Petroleum Institute (API) reported yesterday that last week's inventories of crude oil decreased by 4.5 mbbl, gasoline inventories fell by 3 mbbl and distillates fell by 0.44 mbbl. The reason for the decreases lately is most likely the SynCrude facility in Canada being out of service, which has removed 360 kbpd of crude oil in the U.S. The relatively large gasoline draw is a sign of the U.S. driving season starting to kick in. The timing is rather problematic as the crude outage from Canada is increasing the price of crude oil in the US - namely the WTI crude oil - which lately has become relatively more expensive than Brent. This is causing rising gasoline prices in the U.S.

Supply outages in Libya, Venezuela and potentially Iran has caused Saudi Arabia to pledge to increase production by 1 mbpd, but the market seems increasingly doubtful as to what extent that quantity increase would be possible - at least in the short term.

Tomorrow, the EIA will release the inventory statistics as today is the U.S. Independence Day, and therefore a U.S. holiday.
