Globally, oil prices have remained steady, with forecasts of a recovery in global fuel demand tempered by a surge in India’s Covid-19 cases and rising US crude inventories. Brent crude futures edged down 0.11 per cent, to $66.35 a barrel at 0941 GMT, after rising 1.2 per cent on Tuesday. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were up less than 0.1 per cent, to $62.95 a barrel, after gaining 1.7 per cent in the previous session.
According to the latest reports, An Opec+ decision to stick to plans for a phased easing of oil production restrictions from May to July underscored the group’s confidence in a recovery in global demand.
On Wednesday, Goldman Sachs said that it expected “the biggest jump in oil demand ever, a 5.2 million barrels per day rise over the next six months” as vaccination campaigns accelerate in Europe and demand for travel climbs.
