Solid Gold ~ Minyak Pertahankan Kenaikan, OPEC dan Russia Tetap Berkomitmen Dalam Pemangkasan

minyak9Solid Gold ~ Minyak mempertahankan keuntungan di atas $50 per barel karena OPEC dan Rusia mengatakan bahwa mereka hampir setengah jalan untuk mengatasi kelimpahan pasokan global dan mendesak rekan-rekan produser lainnya untuk tetap fokus dan menyelesaikan pekerjaannya.

Minyak berjangka sedikit berubah di New York setelah naik 1,5 persen pekan lalu. Kelompok yang dipimpin OPEC menerapkan lebih dari 100 persen pemotongan yang disepakati bulan lalu dan stok yang membengkak telah “dikuras secara drastis,” Sekretaris Jenderal OPEC Mohammad Barkindo mengatakan pada hari Jumat di Wina. Rusia memberi isyarat bahwa pihaknya bersedia memperpanjang pemangkasan pasokan melewati akhir Maret jika diperlukan.

Minyak telah menguat lebih dari 7 persen dalam bulan ini karena perkiraan kenaikan permintaan minyak mentah dan kilang Gulf Coast AS melanjutkan operasi pasca Badai Harvey. Drillers menargetkan minyak mentah di Amerika mengurangi jumlah rig selama tiga minggu berturut-turut ke level terendah sejak bulan Juni, menurut Baker Hughes.

Minyak West Texas Intermediate untuk pengiriman November berada di $50,56 per barel di New York Mercantile Exchange, turun 10 sen, pada pukul 09:56 pagi di Hong Kong. Total volume yang diperdagangkan sekitar 68 persen di bawah rata-rata 100 hari. Harga bulan depan naik 11 sen menjadi $50,66 pada hari Jumat, naik untuk sesi ketiga.

Minyak Brent untuk pengiriman November turun 5 sen menjadi $56,81 per barel di ICE Futures Europe exchange yang berbasis di London. Harga Brent naik 2,2 persen pada pekan lalu. Minyak mentah acuan global diperdagangkan lebih besar $6,25 dari WTI. (frk)

Oil held gains above $50 a barrel as OPEC and Russia said they were about halfway toward clearing a global glut and urged fellow producers to stay focused and finish the job.

Futures were little changed in New York after advancing 1.5 percent last week. The OPEC-led group implemented more than 100 percent of its agreed cuts last month and bloated stockpiles have been �massively drained,� OPEC Secretary-General Mohammad Barkindo said Friday in Vienna. Russia signaled it would be willing to extend supply curbs past the end of March if needed.

Oil has advanced more than 7 percent this month on forecasts for rising crude demand and as U.S. Gulf Coast refineries continued to resume operations after Hurricane Harvey. Drillers targeting crude in America reduced the rig count for a third straight week to the lowest since June, according to Baker Hughes.
