U.S. likely has taken over as the worlds top oil producer

Saudis UAE turned OPEC into “tool” for US Iran

USA production has returned to 2014 boom levels, but the energy agency said US output will grow more slowly next year due to bottlenecks in getting oil to markets.

In theory Saudi Arabia could immediately raise output to 11.5 million barrels a day-that's what Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told Bloomberg in April 2016.

The US has surpassed Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation to become the world's largest crude oil producer this year.

Similarly, Brent crude oil dropped 70 cents a barrel to a price of $79.04 a barrel.

According to Kazempour-whose position as Iran's OPEC governor makes him the second most senior member after the oil minister at OPEC meetings-an already emerging "supply shortage" and little spare capacity virtually everywhere means that the United States can't achieve its goal of bringing Iranian oil exports down to zero when sanctions on Iran's oil industry return in early November.

Vettel then botched qualifying in Hungary, again in the rain, as Hamilton took pole and won to stretch his series lead. When the race re-started, Ferrari gambled on pitting first for new tires by bringing in Vettel first.

However, prices were able to rebound into the close on Friday after a report said Secretary of State Michael Pompeo was going to give a press conference on new sanctions on Iran.

Government sources said India made this point clear in last week's meetings with United States officials and remains engaged with Washington to work out waivers on its oil purchases from Iran.

US President Donald Trump has repeatedly urged OPEC to raise its production.

President Trump withdrew Washington in May from the landmark Iran nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries in 2015, and made a decision to re-impose unilateral sanctions against Tehran.

The EU strongly opposed Washington's decision to scrap the nuclear deal and has vowed to introduce a package of measures to protect trade with Iran.

The sanctions cover Iran's purchases of dollars, its trade in gold and precious metals, and its automotive sector.

While oil prices strengthened in recent weeks on the lower supply outlook out of Iran, investors should keep in mind that OPEC can step in at anytime to fill in the gap.

Also, OPEC's crude supply hit a nine-month high of 32.63 million bpd, despite concerns over Venezuela and Iran, with higher volumes from Nigeria and Saudi Arabia as well as increased output in Libya and Iraq contributing to the impressive total.

Cutbacks from Iran's production following the imposition of US sanctions did not provide an immediate enough catalyst for to support prices, he said.

The IEA noted in its report that Iraqi production jumped by 90,000 b/d in August and with its exports running at almost 4 million b/d, it had shipped more crude than Iran produced.
