Oil prices, OPEC crude oil production drops to its lowest in nearly 30 years

The over-performance by Saudi Arabia that has cut its crude oil production by 1 million barrels per day (more than mandated), has helped in reducing OPEC crude oil production to its lowest point in nearly 30 years, thus sending crude oil price soaring to about $42 support levels, and dampening growing concerns of COVID-19 resurgence.

In the month of July, a report from the International Energy Agency (IEA) showed a 108% compliance rate against 89% a month earlier.

Crude oil production of OPEC+ members for June reduced by almost 2 million barrels, compared to the month of May showing 33.4 million barrels per day. This agreement by major oil producers has helped in limiting oil production.

Data from the report also shows that in the month of June, major oil producer, Russia fulfilled its quota for reducing oil production by 100%.

“This solid performance by the OPEC+ group has been supplemented by substantial market-driven cuts, mainly in the United States,” the report added.

Meanwhile, Edward Moya, senior market analyst at Oanda, in a note, said that Crude prices got a boost for the session, in part due to the “upbeat COVID-19 vaccine and treatment news” and a softer dollar, but U.S. benchmark prices remain “anchored below the $41 level and will likely struggle for any major moves” until after next week’s OPEC+ Joint Ministerial Monitoring Committee meeting.

He added that, “The demand outlook risks warrant a discussion for OPEC+ to consider extending production cuts into August.”

Outlook

The Nigerian bourse struggled on most reference levels all week, with the exception of most tier-1 banks, that put up a good show in terms of turnover and gains recorded for the week.

However, with daily case surges in COVID-19 caseloads in major cities around Nigeria, and the high volatility ongoing on Nigeria’s black gold (Brent Crude), Nairametrics envisages cautious buying as geopolitical and economic uncertainty strengthens across the spectrum.
