NEW YORK: The Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies (Opec+) are expected to revive more oil supplies when they meet this week, underscoring the group’s optimism in the outlook for global demand.
The 23-nation alliance led by Saudi Arabia and Russia is likely to proceed with another modest monthly hike of 400,000 barrels a day as it restores production halted during the pandemic, according to a Bloomberg survey.
Several national delegates also said they expect the boost – due to take effect in February – will go ahead.
Opec+ sees global demand continuing to recover this year, taking only a “mild” hit from the Omicron variant. Their confidence is being validated as busy traffic across key Asian consuming countries and dwindling crude inventories in the United States buoy international prices near US$80 (RM333.29) a barrel.
“The market can take the extra oil, as long as Omicron or a macro downturn don’t crush demand again,” said Bob McNally, president of consultant Rapidan Energy Group and a former White House official.
Fifteen of 16 analysts and traders surveyed by Bloomberg predicted the output increase will be approved when the coalition gathers online tomorrow.
Indicators on fuel consumption suggest the barrels can be absorbed, with all but one major Asian country registering a rise in mobility month-on-month, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
Adding supplies would also show that Riyadh continues to be mindful of the inflationary risks afflicting their biggest customers, having acquiesced last month to US president Joe Biden’s calls for extra production to cool runaway gasoline prices.
While that surprise move was initially read as bearish by traders, Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman helped to shore up market sentiment by resolving that Opec’s meeting would remain technically “in session” – allowing it to reverse the output increase at short notice if needed.
Proceeding with the next monthly increase isn’t without risks.
China, Asia’s biggest oil user, has shown signs of weakening fuel demand amid its relentless zero-Covid approach and tough line on pollution, according to road-congestion data from local providers like Baidu Inc.
