Pt Solid Gold Berjangka ~ Penguatan Minyak Di Atas $ 51 Terhenti

minyak8Pt Solid Gold Berjangka ~ Penguatan minyak di atas $ 51 per barel terhenti karena meningkatnya produksi minyak mentah dan rekor cadangan AS bertentangan dengan optimisme di sekitar kemungkinan perpanjangan penurunan produksi yang dipimpin oleh OPEC.

Minyak berjangka turun 0,5 persen di New York, menghapus kenaikan 0,2 persen pada Rabu kemarin. Produksi AS meningkat untuk minggu ketujuh dan persediaan diperluas ke rekor baru, menurut data pemerintah. Namun, jika Organisasi Negara-negara Pengekspor Minyak terus mengurangi pasokan Juni lalu, harga akan naik ke $ 55 per barel, kata Ketua Pioneer Natural Resources Co Scott Sheffield.

Minyak mentah West Texas Intermediate untuk pengiriman Mei berada di $ 50,87 per barel di New York Mercantile Exchange, turun 28 sen, pada pukul 08:46 pagi di Hong Kong. Total volume perdagangan sekitar 66 persen di bawah rata-rata 100-hari. Kontrak WTI naik 12 sen menjadi $ 51,15 pada hari Rabu. Harga turun di bawah $ 50 pada awal bulan lalu untuk pertama kalinya sejak Desember.

Minyak Brent untuk pengiriman Juni turun 27 sen, atau 0,5 persen, ke $ 54,09 per barel di ICE Futures Europe exchange yang berbasis di London. Harga menguat 19 sen menjadi $ 54,36 pada Rabu kemarin. Minyak acuan global diperdagangkan lebih besar $ 2,77 dari WTI.(frk)

Oil�s rebound above $51 a barrel stalled as increasing U.S. crude production and record stockpiles countered optimism around a possible extension of OPEC-led output cuts.

Futures slid 0.5 percent in New York, erasing Wednesday�s 0.2 percent advance. U.S. production rose for a seventh week and inventories expanded to a fresh record, according to government data. Still, if the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries continue to reduce supply past June, prices should climb to$55 a barrel, said Pioneer Natural Resources Co. Chairman Scott Sheffield.

Oil is trading back above $50 a barrel after some OPEC nations supported an extension to the six-month deal with non-member countries. The group�s Secretary-General Mohammad Barkindo said Sunday that he�s �cautiously optimistic that the market is already rebalancing,� even as U.S. explorers boost the drill rig count to the highest since September 2015.

�U.S. output is a headwind as it continues to rise and that�s stopping the price from extending gains,� said David Lennox, a resource analyst at Fat Prophets in Sydney. Still, �the OPEC cuts are preventing oil from sinking to $45.�

West Texas Intermediate for May delivery was at $50.87 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, down 28 cents, at 8:46 a.m. in Hong Kong. Total volume traded was about 66 percent below the 100-day average. The contract gained 12 cents to $51.15 on Wednesday. Prices dropped below $50 early last month for the first time since December.

Brent for June settlement lost 27 cents, or 0.5 percent, to $54.09 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange. Prices advanced 19 cents to $54.36 Wednesday. The global benchmark traded at a premium of $2.77 to WTI.
