Per barrel, the market then returned to around $70. On Friday morning, Brent crude was around $72, “PM Reflex Analysts noted.”
As previously planned, the OPEC + countries decided to increase production by 0.4 million barrels per day in January, after the arrival of the Omicron variable that led to fears of a return to lockdowns. Which led to a drop in oil prices last Friday. This means that they dealt with an oversupply of crude oil, which in January is expected to reach 2-3 million barrels per day.
According to OPEC +, whose next meeting is scheduled for the beginning of January, the excess supply of crude oil in the first quarter of next year will reach an average of 3 million barrels per day. while The United States may delay the release of strategic reserves, while adjusting this decision to consumer expectations and current crude oil prices.
