Oil steady as demand concerns rise, Libya output looms
Oil prices slipped slightly on Monday amid concerns about a stalled global economic recovery and with Libya poised to resume production, but were supported by an impending storm, which has disrupted US oil output. Brent crude LCOc1 was down $0.12, or 0.3%, at $39.71 a barrel while US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures CLc1 were down $0.08, or 0.2%, at $37.25 a barrel by 1400 GMT. Both contracts ended last week lower, falling for a second week in a row. “(Coronavirus) infection rates are on the rise again, there are localised lockdowns introduced in a growing number of countries, hindering regional economic growth and the number of unemployed is failing to fall significantly,” oil broker PVM’s Tamas Varga said. “This leads to dismal oil demand growth.”

IEA sees no major slowdown in oil market
LONDON: The global economy is likely not headed for any major slowdown due to Covid-19 but piled-up storage and uncertainty over China’s oil demand cloud oil markets’ recovery, an official with the International Energy Agency (IEA) said. Keisuke Sadamori, IEA Director for Energy Markets and Security, told Reuters the outlook for oil was in the midst of either a second wave or a steady first wave of the coronavirus. “There is enormous amount of uncertainty, but we don’t expect any additional serious slowdown in the coming months.” “Even though (the market is) not expecting real robust growth coming back soon, the view on demand is more stable compared with three months ago,” he said in an interview. Crude prices LCOc1 and CLc1 plunged in spring to historic lows as the pandemic’s lockdowns crushed demand and have pared losses but remained stuck near $40 a barrel.
