Harga Minyak Mendekati $ 70 Terkait Ancaman Badai yang Menekan Output OPEC – Solid Gold Berjangka

 

Solid Gold Berjangka ~ Minyak diperdagangkan dekati level $ 70 per barel karena investor menilai ancaman terhadap produksi AS dari badai yang diperkirakan akan mendekati Pantai Teluk serta meningkatnya output minyak mentah OPEC.

Kontrak berjangka di New York naik sebanyak 0,6 persen dari penutupan hari Jumat. Tidak ada penyelesaian pada hari Senin karena libur Hari Buruh AS. Anadarko Petroleum Corp mengevakuasi para pekerja dan menutup produksi di dua platform Teluk Meksiko ketika Badai Tropis Gordon mendekati muara Sungai Mississippi. Sementara itu, output dari Organisasi Negara-negara Pengekspor Minyak pada bulan Agustus naik ke level tertingginya pada tahun ini.

Harga minyak telah rebound hampir 8 persen dari level terendahnya pada bulan Agustus karena pembeli minyak mentah Iran telah mulai menghindari pengiriman dari negara Teluk Persia bahkan sebelum sanksi baru AS berlaku penuh pada bulan November. Investor mengamati apakah OPEC dan sekutunya termasuk Rusia akan meningkatkan produksi untuk mengisi potensi defisit. Sementara itu, badai yang mendekati Pantai Teluk Amerika juga meningkatkan kekhawatiran bahwa pasokan mungkin terganggu.

West Texas Intermediate (WTI) untuk pengiriman Oktober naik sebanyak 41 sen ke level $ 70,21 per barel di New York Mercantile Exchange dari penutupan hari Jumat, dan diperdagangkan pada $ 70,06 pada pukul 1:56 siang waktu Tokyo. Semua perdagangan hari Senin akan dipesan pada hari Selasa karena liburan AS. Total volume yang diperdagangkan adalah 340 persen di atas rata-rata 100 hari.

Brent berjangka untuk penyelesaian November diperdagangkan pada $ 78,08 per barel di bursa ICE Futures Europe, turun 7 sen. Kontrak naik 51 sen menjadi $ 78,15 pada hari Senin. Minyak mentah acuan global diperdagangkan pada premium $ 8,43 untuk WTI pada bulan yang sama. (knc)

Oil traded near $70 a barrel as investors assessed the threat to U.S. production from a storm that is forecast to strike the Gulf Coast as well as rising OPEC crude output.

Futures in New York gained as much as 0.6 percent from Friday’s close. There was no settlement Monday because of the U.S. Labor Day holiday.

Meanwhile, output from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries in August rose to the highest level this year.

Investors are watching whether OPEC and its allies including Russia will boost production to fill any potential deficit. Meanwhile, the storm nearing the American Gulf Coast is also raising concerns that supply may be disrupted.
