Crude slips away from 2015 maximums

Crude slips away from 2015 maximums

On Wednesday, oil slipped away from two-and-a-half year maximums reached the previous trading session. It’s because of the gradual resumption of flows via a key North Sea pipeline offset supply disruption in Libya.

However, the two outages in rapid succession have clearly shown how much tighter crude markets worldwide have become a year into supply reductions led by OPEC along with Russia.

American West Texas Intermediate crude futures hit $59.74 a barrel, sliding 23 cents from their previous settlement. Apparently, in the previous session WTI futures overleapt $60 a barrel for the first time since June 2015.

As for Brent crude futures, they demonstrated $66.66 a barrel, losing 36 cents. Yesterday, the given commodity benchmark managed to break through $67 for the first time since May 2015.

The dives happened to be an outcome of the gradual return of the 450,000 barrels a day capacity Forties pipeline system, situated in the North Sea.
