  Oil Price A good day yesterday as the market was positive ahead of the Opec/non Opec meeting at which an extension of the deal looks likely. The EIA inventory stats showed a build of 4.6m barrels but although that was slightly ahead of forecasts given the hurricane damage is still pretty ir ...

Oil price Hurricane Harvey has wreaked havoc in Texas over the weekend, production was halted both offshore and at onshore shale operations but the flooding has probably impacted the refineries more. On Friday the crude price rallied as production fears were highest and the rig count showed a drop ...

Oil price After a shaky start yesterday the oil price settled near the highs of the day, as an example Brent had traded down to around 50 bucks but was nearly a dollar off the bottom at the close. The continued strong dollar hasn't been helping and the market is still concerned about those Chinese ...

Oil price Sometimes the market wants to go in a certain direction, a few weeks ago no amount of good news could trigger a rally, at the moment it is the other way around. Yesterday, news that the uprising in the control room at the Sharara field in Libya had been put down and production was back u ...

Oil price The oil market was fast and furious yesterday and in heavy trading both WTI and the new front month of Brent crude for October struggled under a welter of mainly disappointing news. The first was the Bloomberg report that July output from Opec was again above quotas with an increase of 2 ...

Oil price Onwards and upwards as a number of things added to yesterday's tick list. The data is coming out re long/short positions built in July and they, unsurprisingly show a substantial build in NSL with a lot of short closing. Elsewhere it was announced that there will be a meeting on 7/8 Augu ...

Oil price New best friends Russia and Saudi Arabia are underpinning the market, to a degree although longevity is always uncertain. The KSA after having surprisingly ‘unadhered' to its own quota in May has now accepted its punishment and will cut back more in August and September. The Russians are ...

  Oil price Brent was never going to hold over 50 bucks, not this time anyway as predicted last week, a run up during the week had the air taken out of it on Friday when it became clear late on that deeper production cuts were not on the agenda for today's meeting in St Petersburg. Indeed it s ...

Oil price The oil price rose again reaching levels last seen on 6th of June but Brent also hitting the big figure obstacle which it has struggled to break through in recent  attempts. The EIA inventory stats were mainly full of good news, the crude draw of 4.7m barrels was 1.2m more than forecasts ...

Oil price The EIA inventory stats followed the API numbers and reported a healthy draw of 7.6m barrels as predicted here but not by the goons on the Street who had crayoned in 2.3m barrels. Mixed news though with production still high, Libya up again and the KSA slightly exceeding quotas, (but onl ...

Oil price With the US market shut for Independence Day the oil market was extremely quiet, nothing to report. Sound Energy It's never a dull moment at SOU as today they report excellent news from Sidi Moktar where the Koba-1 well has come in as a ‘producible gas accumulation' that can move rap ...

Oil price Nearly 15% up from the June lows and the oil price continues its bull run although I suspect that with some closing pre the Independence Day holiday today and technical resistance for Brent at $50 we may have seen the short term highs. With the market shut today expect a quiet ride in ot ...

Oil price Last week saw a rise in the oil price, just over 3% but important nevertheless, although I have to say that it may have been a bit more technical than fundamental as period end window dressing probably accounted for a fair bit. What wasnt was unusually US inspired, as a combination of a ...

Oil price As the half year ends the oil price has had a bad period, around 15% off for both WTI and Brent and forward months are not expecting much movement. With the extra crude from the USA, Libya and Nigeria likely to continue (although Mr Hamm thinks that sub $50 is uncommercial) there will no ...

Oil price Another up day yesterday and this time for choice the fundamentals were poor, the EIA stats showed a build of 118/- barrels against a forecast of a draw of 2.2m. Products were better particularly in gasoline which drew 900/- barrels when the API had a 1.4m build. This was partly due to t ...
