Oil's Dramatic Advance Pauses as Market Awaits Saudi Clarity
Tuesday, 17 September 2019 07:36 WIB | ENERGY |MinyakWTIBrentMinyak MentahOil,

Oil's record-breaking advance paused on Tuesday as the market awaited clarity on how long it'll take Saudi Arabia to restore output that was cut in half by the devastating attacks on its production facilities.

It was a subdued start to trading after the fireworks on Monday, when Brent crude rose the most on record and U.S. futures jumped more than 15%. All eyes are on how fast the kingdom can recover from the strike, which knocked out about 5% of global supply. Initially, it was said significant volumes could begin to flow again within days but Saudi officials later told a senior foreign diplomat they face a œsevere disruption measured in weeks and months.

The attacks, which damaged a key processing complex and one of the Saudis' flagship fields, represent the worst sudden oil supply disruption ever and highlight the vulnerability of the world's biggest exporter. They also elevate the geopolitical risk premium in the oil market as concerns intensify about growing instability in such a key crude-producing region.

Futures dipped at the start of trading on Tuesday. Brent was 1.4% lower at $68.05 a barrel on the ICE Futures Europe exchange at 8:01 a.m. in Singapore, while WTI slipped 1.7% to $61.81 a barrel. WTI volumes were about 80% below the average for the time of day.
