WTI and Brent adjust after the fall

Yesterday Saudi Aramco informed that the oil production infrastructure had been rebuilt after the recent attack. The market prices negatively reacted to that news. But today we can observe the expected correction.

At 8 am Moscow time, Brent crude oil futures (traded at ICE Futures), rose to $ 59.69 per barrel ($ 0.44 or 0.74%). We recall that on Monday the asset lost $ 1.79 (almost 3%!).

Oil of another popular benchmark WTI has increased $ 0.48 (or 0.89%) – to the mark of $ 54.55 per barrel. Yesterday, WTI fell to $ 59.25, i.e. $ 1.79 (2.93%).

After rebuilding the infrastructure, oil production in Saudi Arabia is approximately estimated at 9.9 million barrels per day. Quick repairs have become an incredibly strong bearish catalyst for the energy market.

September was not an awful month for oil: Brent has increased 0.6%. WTI, however, has lost 1.9%. The statistics for the third quarter of this year looks different: the European benchmark has lost 8.7%, the American – 7.5%.
