Crude closed high on Thursday on optimism about demand as well as still tight supply. Indeed, this increase is driven by a general market sentiment relatively favorable to the macroeconomic situation and the conviction that supply should remain tight until the end of 2021.
WTI crude oil futures were up 1.5%, more than $ 1 from Wednesday’s close. Like Wall Street, the oil market has also been sensitive to the increasingly reassuring tone of messages from China about the plight of property developer Evergrande, which is on the brink of default. In addition, the acceleration of air travel caused by the lifting of restrictions on entry into the United States by Washington could also stimulate demand for kerosene. And finally, while natural gas prices are suspended from the ceiling, we could see a shift in demand from gas to oil, which would obviously stimulate the rally from barrel to Q4!
On Thursday evening, Lebanese Hezbollah announced the arrival of a new shipment of oil from Iran to the Syrian port of Banians – the Al Mana party TV channel reported this morning on its Telegram account. Hezbollah maintains that the shipments are intended to help the Lebanese people, who are suffering from severe fuel shortages due to the financial crisis the country has been experiencing for two years.
In contrast, Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mimait, expected Friday at the Elysee Palace (Paris), said the shipments from Iran violated the sovereignty of Lebanon, with Syria and Iran both subject to US sanctions. .
