Crude Stocks Rise For Eighth Straight Week As Exports Ease Off Record

US crude oil exports hit record levels in 2016 despite a decline in US oil production

According to Reuters calculations, Russia's cut from the October level reached 100,000 bpd in February, resulting in compliance of just 33 percent.

A Reuters' survey indicates that the exporter group has boosted already strong compliance to around 94 percent. Interestingly, this price level, according to unnamed OPEC sources, is considered sufficient to discourage US shale producers from building production further. Angola, among the most compliant members in January, failed to meet its target in February after the start-up of two oil projects.

US production rose 0.3% to 9.032 million barrels per day, hitting the highest level in almost a year. The non-OPEC members who had supported the cuts have achieved 60 percent compliance at the moment.

The transaction was disclosed in a legal filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available at the SEC website . Following the transaction, the chief financial officer now directly owns 181,606 shares in the company, valued at $2,148,398.98.

Kuwait pledged to cut production by 131,000 bpd from a baseline of 2.838 million bpd.

Most of the data reported by the Energy Department from the fluctuating inventories are from barrels imported from Saudi Arabia; as a matter of fact the country is responsible for as much as 70% of OPEC proposed cuts, and Saudi Arabia also stands as the second biggest source of United States crude imports, just behind Canada.

New official data show top four Asian buyers of Iran's crude oil more than doubled their imports from the country in December compared with the same month a year earlier, for the third straight month. The sharp domestic production also played a big role with the monumental milestone; current production has increased to 9 million barrels for the past couple of weeks. According to the latest data available, at the end of January its production was still 130,000 bpd above this quota.

Experts pitch for policy on rare diseases
Summit Therapeutics PLC (NASDAQ: SMMT LON:SUMM) has hailed the tenth annual Rare Disease Day, 28 February 2017. The announcement was made Tuesday to coincide with the national awareness campaign Rare Disease Day .

Saudi Arabia, the world's largest crude exporter, cut pricing for April oil sales to the USA and Northwest Europe and trimmed most grades for buyers in Asia and the Mediterranean. USA stockpiles expanded to 520.2 million barrels, the most in weekly government data going back to 1982.

Oil prices have been unusually stable since oil producers agreed in November to reduce output, with both Brent and US crude locked in $5 a barrel ranges.

Michael Wittner, global head of oil research at Société Générale, said: "US inventories moved directionally in line with expectations, and with relatively small stock changes across the board".
