OPEC daily basket price $35.48

maxresdefault (1)Vienna, Austria, 29 March 2016–The price of OPEC basket of thirteen crudes stood at $35.48 a barrel on Monday, compared with $34.96 the previous day, according to OPEC Secretariat calculations.


The new OPEC Reference Basket of Crudes (ORB) is made up of the following: Saharan Blend (Algeria), Girassol (Angola), Oriente (Ecuador), Minas (Indonesia), Iran Heavy (Islamic Republic of Iran), Basra Light (Iraq), Kuwait Export (Kuwait), Es Sider (Libya), Bonny Light (Nigeria), Qatar Marine (Qatar), Arab Light (Saudi Arabia), Murban (UAE) and Merey (Venezuela).

Meanwhile CNBC reports that oil prices fell on Tuesday, reflecting growing concerns that a two-month rally may be in danger of fizzling, while analysts forecast another rise to record levels for U.S. crude stockpiles.

The oil price has risen by more than 45 percent since mid-February ahead of a meeting next month between the world’s major producers to discuss an output freeze to support prices. But there is growing scepticism about the outcome of meeting.

“The amount of verbal intervention, which has obviously helped the market greatly over the past two months, combined with a production slowdown in the U.S., has probably taken (oil) as far as it can, now the market really wants to see some action,” Saxo Bank senior manager Ole Hansen.

“We’re seeing more and more commentators raise the flag and saying ‘have we seen too much, too soon?’ in terms of the rally across the sector.”
