Market Summary: October 17, 2021

Tue, 10/19/2021 - 00:33
Petroleum prices rose for an eighth consecutive week. This is the longest streak of weekly gains for Brent in more than 20 years. Continued OPEC+ discipline spearheaded by Saudi dismissiveness of additional production requests, the approach of winter in the northern hemisphere, a sharp rise in petroleum demand linked to price increases in Natural Gas, LNG and coal and a constructive monthly report from the IEA seeing overall petroleum demand exceeding global production through the fourth quarter were the key drivers for price increases. This was also the likely peak of refinery turnaround

Market Summary: October 10, 2021

Tue, 10/12/2021 - 00:36
Petroleum prices rose for a seventh consecutive week as WTI hit $80 for the first time since November 1, 2014. No imminent release from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve as falsely rumored earlier in the week, more switching to petroleum for power generation as Natural Gas prices continue to increase at record rates particularly in Europe, OPEC+ maintaining restraint in sticking to its current output, the ongoing easing of Covid-19 restrictions thus facilitating demand and US Crude production still below Hurricane Ida levels all contributed to price increases this week. WTI gained 4.6%,

Market Summary: October 2, 2021

Tue, 10/05/2021 - 00:46
Petroleum prices rose for a sixth consecutive week and sixth consecutive quarter. This was the largest monthly increase since June as Crude prices touched three year highs earlier in the week. Prices increased despite US Crude inventories rising for the first week in eight. Ongoing global production disruptions, the lingering effects of Hurricane Ida, a reversal in Chinese policies that should increase demand and overwhelmingly high Natural Gas prices that carry with them the threat of a shift in demand to petroleum-based stocks for thermal needs were the leading causes for increasing prices

Market Summary: September 26, 2021

Tue, 09/28/2021 - 00:43
Petroleum prices rose for a fifth consecutive week as worse than expected long-term damage to both refining and production assets in the US Gulf coupled with the inability of OPEC+ to increase production overshadowed any concerns related to demand destruction associated with still widespread cases of Covid-19. US Crude inventories fell to their lowest level in three years and Brent prices reached their highest levels since October 2018 as US refinery utilization did in fact increase to pre-hurricane levels. On the week, WTI gained 3%, Brent 3.7%, RBOB 0.8% and ULSD 2.6%. Total commercial

Market Summary: September 19, 2021

Tue, 09/21/2021 - 00:38
Energy prices increased for a fourth consecutive week, touching their highest levels since July. A slow return of production from Hurricane Ida, smaller than expected increases from OPEC+ due to production issues and an IEA monthly report showing a tightening of global supplies in the near term were the key positive themes of the week. Ongoing flareups of Covid-19 worldwide and China’s continuing threat to release stocks from their Strategic Petroleum Reserve to rein in rapid inflation served to restrain price gains. On the week, WTI gain 3.2%, Brent 3.3%, RBOB 0.8% and ULSD 2.9%. Total
