Crude Price Falls On Saudi Arabia Production Increase, CAD Follows

  • Trump's Tweet on Deal With Saudi King Makes Oil Prices Plummet

Oil prices have gained more than 3 percent since OPEC and allies agreed on June 22 to raise output to meet production caps set in 2016. "It is a real blow to OPEC, in part because of the impression the Saudis are following USA bidding, but mostly because Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation had stitched up a deal to raise production anyway even before the meeting".

According to Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), Saudi Arabia produces approximately 10 million barrels of crude per day.

Referring to reports that Saudi Arabia may increase its oil exports to replace Iranian oil in world markets, Jahangiri said: "Anyone trying to take away Iran's oil market (share) would be committing great treachery against Iran and will one day pay for it".

"Your tweets have increased the prices by at least $10".

USA production C-OUT-T-EIA has soared 30 percent in the past two years, to 10.9 million bpd, meaning the world's three biggest oil producers now churn out nearly 11 million bpd each, meeting a third of global oil demand.

Saudi Arabia had previously indicated it could step in to alleviate any shortfall in oil supply amid falling production in Venezuela and expected U.S. sanctions on Iran.

President Trump wrote in the tweet that the "OPEC Monopoly must remember that gas prices are up & they are doing little to help", and that America defends many OPEC members for "very little" money. After leading the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies to cut production at the start of a year ago, the kingdom has seen its hold on the world's top oil consuming region reduced as rivals from the U.S.to Iran boost exports. Both the administration and the Saudis later clarified the dialogue between the two sides, explaining that Saudi Arabia stated it has 2 Mbd of extra capacity to add global markets when necessary.

"A fall in the price per barrel won't serve the interests of the big oil producers", Kaddour stressed.

Despite the apparent supply relief from Saudi Arabia, oil markets remain tense over escalating trade disputes between the United States and other major economies including China, the European Union, India and Canada, as well as the looming new USA sanctions against Iran.

"Oil is already being offered on the bourse, about 60,000 barrels per day, but that has been only for exports of oil products", Jahangiri said.

"Further declines in USA crude oil inventories and the significant outage in Libyan oil supply are helping to keep a floor under the market", said Harry Tchilinguirian, head of commodity markets strategy at BNP Paribas SA in London.

Immediately after the moot, the US Energy Secretary Rick Perry emphasised that the deal between global oil producers to boost crude output was not enough to relieve global oil markets that are stressed by supply constraints.

The State Department has said it expects the "vast majority" of countries will comply with the U.S. request. The two main importers of Iranian crude are China and India; both of whom import around 400,000 BPD now.
