Minyak tergelincir, tetapi didukung oleh ekspektasi pengetatan pasokan – Solid Gold

 

Solid Gold ~ Harga minyak mentah tergelincir pada hari Senin setelah naik sekitar sebanyak 3% di sesi sebelumnya, tetapi didukung oleh ekspektasi pengetatan pasokan serta tanda-tanda bahwa ketegangan perdagangan China-AS dapat mereda.

MInyak berjangka West Texas Intermediate (WTI) AS berada di $ 55,06 per barel pada 01.22 GMT, turun 20 sen, atau 0,36%, dari penyelesaian terakhir mereka. WTI menetap 2,73% lebih tinggi di sesi terakhir di level penutupan terkuat sejak 19 November.

Minyak mentah berjangka internasional Brent pada Senin turun 24 sen, pada $ 62,51 per barel, setelah ditutup naik 3,14 persen pada sesi sebelumnya di level tertinggi sejak 21 November.

Perusahaan-perusahaan energi Amerika pekan lalu memangkas jumlah rig minyak yang beroperasi ke level terendah dalam delapan bulan karena beberapa pengeboran menindaklanjuti rencana untuk mengurangi pengeluaran untuk sumur-sumur baru tahun ini.

Di tempat lain, tekanan pada produsen minyak Venezuela yang dilanda krisis terus meningkat terakit sanksi AS.(yds)

Crude oil prices slipped on Monday after gains of about 3 percent in the previous session, but they were buoyed by expectations of tightening supply and signs that China-U.S. trade tensions could ease.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) futures were at $55.06 per barrel at 0122 GMT, down 20 cents, or 0.36 percent, from their last settlement. WTI settled 2.73-percent higher in the last session at its strongest closing level since Nov. 19.

International Brent crude oil futures on Monday were down 24 cents, at $62.51 a barrel, after closing up 3.14 percent in the previous session at their highest since Nov. 21.

U.S. energy firms last week cut the number of oil rigs operating to their lowest in eight months as some drillers followed through on plans to spend less on new wells this year.

Elsewhere, pressure on crisis-hit oil producer Venezuela continues to mount as U.S. sanctions bite.
