United Araba Emirates Energy Minister Suhail Al Mazrouei said the OPEC and its allies are “doing what they could” to offset crude output shortfalls.
U.S. crude inventories fell last week by 6.8 million barrels, according to data from industry group, the American Petroleum Institute. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the White House would consider extending sanctions relief to some oil buyers of Iranian crude beyond the previously announced November deadline.
Investor fears that the loss of Iranian crude could be less than initially anticipated, reducing the prospect of a meaningful global supply shortage, overshadowed reports about a fresh supply outage. Shell’s Knarr field in Norway was taken offline – which produces around 23,000 barrels of oil per day – after 669 oil rig workers in Norway went on strike Tuesday as wage talks failed.
The disruptions in Norway exacerbated unplanned outages in Libya and Canada, which had already trimmed global inventories. Libya’s national oil output has dropped to 527,000 barrels per day (bpd) from a high of 1.28 million bpd in February, the head of the National Oil Corporation said on Monday.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration raised its 2019 estimate on U.S. crude-oil production, according to the agency’s July short-term Energy Outlook report released Tuesday.
