Global oil market faces surplus throughout 2019 as demand slows: IEA

Saudis scramble to stop oil price slide

Crude prices are influenced by several variables such as speculation on oil trades (known as futures), inventory levels, geopolitics, global economic growth and the relationship between global supply and demand.

Additionally, on Tuesday, the U.S. Energy Information Administration said U.S. crude oil output from its seven major shale basins is expected to hit a record of 7.94 million barrels per day (bpd) in December.

Following yesterday's price declines, this morning has seen a fresh wave of OPEC source reports, which have suggested that the cartel is looking at potentially delivering a 1.4mbpd oil output cut for 2019, in order to avoid an oil supply surplus that would pressure prices (Decision likely to be taken at the December 6th OPEC meeting).

Crude oil has lost more than 25% of its value since early October in what has become one of the biggest declines since prices collapsed in 2014.

The prior estimate was 2.2 million bpd and 1.8 million bpd, respectively.

"It's like a run on the bank", said Mr Phil Flynn, analyst at Price Futures Group in Chicago.

American fingerprints are all over oil's record losing streak that's plunged prices into a bear market. The American Petroleum Institute said late on Wednesday that crude inventories rose by 8.8 million barrels in the week to November 9 to 440.7 million, compared with analyst expectations for an increase of 3.2 million barrels. In 2019, world oil demand growth is forecast to grow by 1.29 mb/d y-o-y, about 70 tb/d lower than last month's projection, with total world consumption to reach 100.08 mb/d.

USA bank Morgan Stanley said on Wednesday that China's economic "conditions deteriorated materially" in the third quarter of 2018, while analysts at Capital Economics said China's "near-term economic outlook still remains downbeat".

A seasonal build in crude oil stocks has proven to be the norm for fall of 2018.

Another large Russian oil producer, Gazprom Neft, is ready to lift output by a further 20,000-30,000 bpd this year and by 50,000 bpd next year.

By that point, Lee had long since become more of a company figurehead rather than a writer and editor in the day-to-day trenches. The suit was dismissed by Lee in July. "If there's a story I like a lot, there's got to be others with similar tastes".

Worldwide benchmark Brent crude oil futures were down 9 cents at.38 per barrel.

Oil clung to its rebound as tension over USA sanctions against Saudi Arabia overshadowed a jump in American crude stockpiles.

The president has long complained about OPEC and its control over global oil prices.

Surging U.S. production is a headache for OPEC+. He continued that the ultimate aim is to compel Iran (currently the world's sixth largest exporter of crude oil) to permanently abandon its well-documented outlaw activities and behave as a normal country.

He urged the Federal Government to put in place measures to improve oil production, adding that OPEC will soon exempt Nigeria from crude oil cut imposed on the country and Libya since past year.
