    On Wednesday (March 13), Shanghai crude oil prices rose. The main contract SC1904 closed at 445.5 yuan / barrel, up 0.8 yuan, or 0.18%. OPEC warned Wall Street's large banking institutions on the US Congress Hill "N-OPEC" legislation, saying that it would open the faucet of crude oil, causing oil prices to collapse. US March 8 week, API crude oil inventories - 2.58 million barrels, expected +286 million barrels, the previous value of + 7.97 million barrels; API Cushing area crude oil inventory - 1.1 million barrels, the previous value +113 million barrels; API gasoline inventory - 5.8 million barrels, the former value of -391,000 barrels. The short-term market is still tight on crude oil supply expectations, but this positive support for prices is declining marginally. In the absence of new bullish boosts, the oil market rebound is difficult to sustain in the short term.

    Venezuela’s recent crude oil production has dropped by 500,000 barrels per day due to power outages. Venezuelan President Maduro announced in a televised speech on the evening of 12th that Venezuela had won the attack against the power system of the Commission, and the national power supply has basically recovered.

    [This Friday's domestic refined oil price adjustment will usher in the first time in the year]

    At 24 o'clock on March 14th, the refined oil price adjustment window will be opened again, and it is expected that it will be stranded for the first time in the year. Li Yan, an analyst of Longzhong Information Oil, said that as of March 11, the overall rate of change in crude oil was -1.04%, corresponding to a downward adjustment of 40 yuan/ton. According to the regulations, when the price adjustment is less than 50 yuan per ton, no adjustment will be made, and it will be added or offset when it is included in the next price adjustment. In terms of international oil prices, during the current round of price adjustment, due to the firmer position of OPEC's production reduction and the fact that US crude oil production hit a record high, the international oil price change rate first dropped and then rose. Therefore, the probability of stranding this round is relatively high. According to the reporter, as of now, the domestic refined oil price adjustment has been carried out 4 times in 2019, totaling 4 times, down 0 times, stranded 0 times, gasoline has been raised by 670 yuan / ton, and diesel has been raised by 645 yuan / ton. After this price adjustment, the price adjustment bureau in 2019 will become "four rises and zeros and one stranded." The next round of price adjustment window will open at 24:00 on March 28, 2019.

    Huatai Futures: Saudi Arabia will still reduce crude oil exports

    Recently, Saudi Arabia said that it will continue to cut production in April, and its export volume will drop to less than 7 million barrels per day, making its supply and refinery customers' demand gap 600,000 barrels per day, due to Saudi Arabia’s exports to Europe and the United States. Down to the low level, we expect that the biggest impact of the decline in exports is still the Asia-Pacific market. The recent decline in EFS continues to show that the market's expectations for “East Tisson” have further intensified. We also mentioned in the monthly report that Saudi Arabia’s purpose is hope. By reducing exports, the global imbalance in supply and demand of oil is avoided, but it will increase the imbalance between supply and demand in the region. EFS is still required to maintain a low level to achieve an increase in trade flows to the eastern region of the Western Region.
