The global oil markets have seen a steady rally in the past week, which has led to WTI crude oil prices racing back above the $60 mark. Aiding the oil rally was an unexpected drop in U.S. crude oil inventories and a production halt at a major Libyan oil field.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) announced that crude oil storage fell by 1.6 million barrels during the week of February 16th. The decline marks a sharp contrast from the past several weeks of inventory buildups. “Total U.S. commercial oil stocks subsequently dipped below the five-year average for the first time in nearly four years,” said Stephen Brennock, an analyst at PVM Oil Associates Ltd.
Last Friday, Libya’s National Oil Company declared “force majeure” on oil exports in the southern region of the country. This shut down and evacuated a 60,000 barrel-a-day oil field due to political protests. Oil analysts note that the country’s oil production will continue to be volatile, as Libya battles political unrest and protests.
Saudi Arabian Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih recently announced that the country’s January-March oil production is expected to come in below output caps, as exports are averaging less than 7 million barrels per day.
As WTI crude oil rides the bullish wave, Advantagewon Oil Corp. (OTCQB: ANTGF) (CSE: AOC) is one oil producer to keep an eye on.
