The 16 March Crude Oil Price Technical Outlook reveals that crude oil has consolidated tightly into Friday’s session and WTI is freezing at the 61.15 level.
16 March, GKFX – Oil bulls have hesitated this week as reports continue to come out that suggest the oil supply pouring out of the US and other countries may not get eaten up by rising demand as quickly as many had hoped.
U.S to become the world’s largest crude supplier
The efforts by OPEC to stem the tide of oil oversupply are running into big roadblocks as oil continues to get pumped and produced at record rates, and the US is on pace to become the world’s largest supplier of crude sometime this year or next, usurping Russia from the top spot.
On Thursday, the International Energy Agency (IEA) stated that the global oil supply increase in February of 700,000bpd from a year ago to brought the total supply up to 97.9M barrels per day. The IEA also noted that supply from producers outside of the OPEC led by the US is expected to grow by 1.8M bpd this year, compared to a 760,000bpd increase last year.
