Oil price It is now officially squeaky bum time with  the Opec meeting starting on Wednesday and many potential strategies still being discussed. The non-Opec meeting scheduled for today has been suspended as the Saudis have apparently decided to ensure that the Opec house is in order before any ...

Oil price I always think that it is rather nice when the market appears to be thinking with one voice, particularly if G Sucks is on the other side. The feedback from the Opec meeting is overwhelming cynical with most so called experts writing the obituary of the whole organisation let alone thi ...

Oil price Whilst many commentators remain unconvinced, the oil price is tracking upwards and for the moment giving the deal the benefit of the doubt. A decent spin from the 1oth December non-Opec meeting should cement, at least for the time being the situation. Range Resources Range has annou ...

Oil price The fact that the prices above, being the Friday night close, are out of date by well over two dollars indicates that the meeting in Vienna on Saturday between Opec and Non-Opec countries was deemed to be a success. As I write, WTI is $54.09 and Brent is $56.77, indicating that for the ...

Oil price Traders told me yesterday that the market was looking to have a correction so when the EIA inventory stats came out, although initially pleasing, they found some dirt. That was in the fact that although there was a useful draw of 2.6m barrels, better than forecast and the API number it ...

Oil price The only major item of note yesterday was a narrowing of the discount of WTI to Brent, this  came partly as traders feel that the the UK pipeline reopening brings more Brent to the market and slightly weakens the relative prices and partly as the gap has simply become too high. Apart fr ...

Oil price Just as I said that the inventory stats would remain helpful we got one that rather unsettled the market. With the EIA showing a build of 2.3m barrels after an API draw and forecasts of a draw of around 2.4m the market was flummoxed especially as refinery rates were up. It turns out tha ...

Oil price The oil market is now almost shut for the Christmas holiday and was solid yesterday on the back of pretty good US economic data. It is worth keeping an eye on the natural gas price which remains firm and is probably likely to remain so. Preliminary numbers on US natural gas consumption ...

Oil price 2016 turned out to be a pretty good year for the oil price and the end year comparisons dont tell the whole story about the lows in January and February. WTI ended up with a gain of $16.68, +45% whilst Brent rose $18.85 or 52%. This mornings price are better again, WTI is $54.99 and the ...

Oil price The strong dollar hit the crude price yesterday although traders reported some selling of WTI as it hit the landmark $55 level, not seen since June 2015.

Oil price Another good day for the oil price as the KPC confirmed that it was cutting production in January as part of the Opec agreement. Further good news came from Bloomberg as their survey showed that in December Opec output fell by 310/- b/d to 33.1m b/d. Another vaguely positive number was ...

Oil price The oil price was steady enough last week, a pretty good performance under all circumstances. It battled with a strong dollar probably likely to be made stronger, as the NFP numbers were low field but wage growth indicated some heat in the US economy that will likely be treated by rate r ...

Oil price Another good day yesterday as news that the Saudis production was falling more than expected came out. With production now below 10m b/d they are clearly making up for any quota busters such as Iraq. Bears of the deal will clearly take it as bad news that the Saudis have to make up for o ...
