Wrap – Week Ended 7/2/21



No OPEC+ statement until Monday. Currently contemplated increased group output yields lower year end inventory levels as seasonal demand increase far outpaces loosening production curbs and expected non OPEC rebound.

Holdings Watch:

  • We added to one placeholder oily position making it core this week.
  • The Blotter is updated.

Questions and comments under The Wrap will be addressed in the Tuesday post. Questions about the site can be directed to zman@zmansenergybrain.com

Have a great long weekend.

    Am puzzled about the UAE QUIBBLING. Over a higher OPEC+ base, when one of the EMIRATES [Abu Dhabi] is cutting their production ….5% in August & 15% in September.

    OPEC Watch:
    Meeting planned for Monday canceled after UAE would not budge on it’s production baseline reset demands.

    UAE has promised to comply with existing production levels, 

    No date has been set for the next group meeting,

    No official statement,

    According to Saudi, given no agreement no increase in production has been authorized.
    The agreement would have seen a 0.4 mm bopd increase per month beginning in August. 

    We expect either a new meeting date or a new deal to pop out in 1 or 2 weeks.
