A year has passed since the outbreak of the coronavirus, resulting in several countries of the world experiencing second, third or fourth waves of infections and repeated lockdowns, curfews and/or restricted travel.

As a result, global #fuel demand continues to be weighed down by poor economic conditions and social distancing measures.

A Price Breakout – Now Where?

The price of Brent crude oil closed last week at $59.34 after closing the previous week at $55.88. In similar fashion, the price of WTI closed at $56.85 after closing the previous week at $52.20.

The significant uptick in prices broke the recent trend of the last several weeks, during which prices were slowly creeping upwards. #Oilprices are now back at a level last seen in January of 2020. In comparison, the price of Brent crude hit a low of $19.33 on April 21, 2020 and was still only at $37.94 on October 30, 2020.

During the past decade, the #EU has been very active in promoting environmental and #energy policies which peaked in 2020, when the 27 EU Member States (MS) committed themselves to achieve a 55% CO2 emissions reduction target by 2030, relative to 1990 levels, and to become the first #netzerocarbon continent by 2050.

Sulfur reduction is still at the core of fuel quality policies in #Asia Pacific; it is carried out in parallel with various #biofuels mandates and targets.

#MTBE and #ethanol continue to be among the region’s more popular options to enhance octane in gasoline.

For #diesel, new #biodiesel blending levels beyond B7 are being planned or are in the process of being phased in by oil palm-producing countries such as B10 and B20 in #Thailand and B20 in #Malaysia, while #Indonesia currently requires biodiesel to account for 30% of the total diesel pool.

Electric vehicle sales are booming in #Europe, with no signs of the trend reversing. This is a new factor for the biofuel sector to reckon with, as both can partly contribute to the same mandates.

In #Brazil, the LCFS-style RenovaBio program came into full force in January 2020, the same month when road fuel emission reduction obligations kicked off in all #EU countries, the #UK and #Norway. In 2017, less than 9% of global biofuel demand was consumed in markets where a fuel pool emission reduction applies. In 2020, this had risen to 49%. The share could increase to 80% by 2023.

The OPEC+ cohesion will be challenged several times this year, starting with Saudi Arabia’s decision last week to cut an additional 1 million b/d of #supply for February and March.

We explore why this and additional actions of the upcoming Biden administration have the potential to complicate the geopolitical arena in this tumultuous 2021.

Last week’s political events in the US were certainly chaotic, starting with the formal Congressional objections to the electoral votes to the additional developments that unfolded later that day.

While startling, both financial and oil markets were essentially oblivious to the events.

There was an additional event on the other side of the world related to #oil markets, and will have significant impact on the management of the oil fundamentals and price stability.

We explore it in this week’s What Is Affecting Oil Prices http://bit.ly/3shqRtV

#Oil products account for 9.8 quads of #energy demand growth (about 5.7 million bbl/d in volume terms) in #China and #India combined, or approximately one-third of their collective primary energy demand increase by 2030.

As with primary energy, China's oil product demand growth exceeds India's by close to a 2-to-1 ratio, though the latter sees a significantly higher growth rate.

Saudi Arabia follows India at a distant 3rd, with 670 thousand bbl/d of demand growth, comprised primarily of gasoil, ethane, and other light products.

The US and #Japan lead the largest declines, followed by three of the 5 largest European markets.

The price of Brent crude oil closed last week at $51.80, which was up slightly from the previous week’s close of $51.29.

The price movement aligned with our expectations that #oil prices would hold up – even with the ongoing concerns about #COVID19 and the impact on oil #demand.

These concerns were outweighed by the passage of another stimulus/recovery package that was signed by President Trump on Sunday, December 27, 2020.

The price of WTI closed the week at $48.52 after closing the prior week at $48.30
