Oil up but posts weekly loss on stock build, trade tensions

Oil up but posts weekly loss on stock build, trade tensions

Refiners in Turkey, India and possibly China are reportedly negotiating with USA officials over waivers to enable them to continue purchasing at least some Iranian oil after November 4. Saudi Arabia could decide to slow-walk future output hikes.

According to the EIA's report, us crude oil refinery inputs averaged 16.3 million barrels per day during last week, which was 77,000 barrels per day more than the previous week's average.

I think at this point, the oil markets are very skittish as there are tensions between the United States and Saudi Arabia, and then of course the Iranian sanctions.

But those who are against the idea, say once we have not still resolved the problems and weaknesses in the stock trades, how can we set up a new proper ground for offering oil in this market?

Indian refiners also cut imports of Iranian oil purchases last month in a sign they are preparing for November.

"Our ties are now influenced by the United States sanctions., but the fact that cooperatives are exempted from these bans gives South Korea a very good opportunity", the Korean diplomat said.

On the other hand, Trump could opt to take a middle ground in an effort to prevent oil and gasoline prices spiking ahead of the midterm elections.

The government is to offer oil in the form of at least 35,000-barrel-cargos and the total of one million barrels per day at IRENEX, he announced addressing the 4th Iranian Petroleum and Energy Club Congress & Exhibition in Tehran. However, Iran's customers began cutting their orders after Trump announced in May that sanctions would be re-imposed.

As shown below, the pair has declined from a high of 86.65 to a low of 78.83.

An unprecedented volume of Iranian crude oil is set to arrive at China's northeast Dalian port this month and in early November before USA sanctions on Iran take effect, according to an Iranian shipping source and data on Refinitiv Eikon. China's imports from Iran fell to 430,000 bpd in September, the lowest amount since 2016.

Saudi Arabia and Kuwait will flounder to resume oil production from jointly operated fields that produced some 500,000 barrels per day any time soon due to operational differences and increasingly sour political ties, according to sources.

As these tensions have risen, the price of crude oil has fallen. This was much higher than the 1.8 million that traders had expected.

"We just have a hard time believing the Saudis can ramp up production meaningfully in the next 30 days on a sustainable basis", said Michael Tran, director of global energy strategy at RBC Capital. That's up from around 9.9 million barrels in the first quarter.

By the late 1980s, however, expensive and unreliable oil had been largely pushed out of the power sector by cheaper and more secure coal, gas and nuclear, a permanent loss of markets from which it has never recovered.
