Opec crude production fell by 240,000 b/d in February to 30.68 million b/d, its lowest level in 4 years. February numbers show a significant over compliance, with Saudi Arabia leading efforts to implement cuts with a 153% compliance rate, some 170,000 b/d already below their overall target.  Iraq and Saudi Arabia alone contributed 170,000 b/d in additional cuts between them in February alone. However, having already cut production close to their original 2019 target, they may now be missing the opportunity to capture market share in the face of rising demand.

The US product export market has been transformed over the past decade. Exports of clean petroleum products (CPP) averaged 2.5 million b/d last year, up from just 0.8 million b/d in 2008. Rising trade has been underpinned by rapid growth in US crude production and refiners’ access to cheaper crude feedstock. Refining margins in the US Gulf have generally been stronger in recent years, compared to those seen in other regional markets.  The weekly tanker market report by Gibson Shipbrokers features an overview of the crude oil and oil product tanker market.

After falling to $50/bbl in late December, Brent and heavy sour Oman crude prices have recovered to over $67/bbl. OPEC’s decision in December to cut production by almost 800,000 b/d for an initial period of six months seems to have had the desired effect of lifting flailing crude prices, which traded at $85/bbl in October. Although prices are still considerably lower compared to those recent highs, it is so far an encouraging sign. IEA numbers released last week showed a decrease in OPEC production of just under 1.2 million b/d from October levels, an overcut of almost 400,000 b/d due to over compliance from producers such as Saudi Arabia. When taking ‘non-OPEC’ production cuts into consideration, the total cut for January totalled over 1.3 million b/d.  The weekly tanker market report by Gibson Shipbrokers features an overview of the crude oil and oil product tanker market.

Like all other crude tanker segments, Suezmax rates have been on a rollercoaster ride over the past six months. Earnings surged in the 4th quarter of last year, in part due to major Turkish Straits delays, in part due to marginal fleet growth. Of course, other factors were at play as well, such as higher Middle East/Russian crude exports in Q4 2019, prior to the re-imposition of the production constraint. The picture now is very different. Earnings on benchmark routes in the Atlantic Basin declined steadily during the 1st quarter, averaging in March close to OPEX. Once again, the decline has been triggered by a combination of factors.  The weekly tanker market report by Gibson Shipbrokers features an overview of the crude oil and oil product tanker market.
