Oil continues to ice up

On the international market, at 6 o’clock on June 6 (Vietnam time) the price of US WTI crude oil traded at 120.7 USD/barrel, up 1.78 USD, equivalent to 1.50%. At the same time, the price of Brent crude oil for August delivery was trading at 121.6 USD/barrel, up 1.87 USD, or 1.56%.

Both Brent and WTI crude oil commodities started the new trading week with gains from last week.

Previously, the world oil price closed the last session of the week with a strong increase despite the news that the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and Allies (OEPC+) had just announced an increase in output.

At the end of last week’s trading week, oil prices recorded the price of WTI light sweet crude for delivery in July, 2022 on the New York Mercantile Exchange, standing at 120.26 USD/barrel, up 3.39 USD/barrel during the session; Meanwhile, the price of Brent oil delivered in August 2022 stood at 121.27 USD/barrel, up 3.66 USD/barrel during the session.

Worry that supply in the near future will continue to be tight from the decision to impose an embargo on two-thirds of oil from Russia (equivalent to 2 million barrels per day) has made the market tense.

Analysts believe that, to a certain extent, the EU’s embargo on Russian crude oil will not have much impact on the market because Russia will also actively seek to shift oil sources to Asian countries like India. , China. However, this is affected because the high transportation costs cause oil prices to increase and travel times are longer. Thus, the market’s reaction shows that the EU embargo has had a significant impact on the global fuel market and it is difficult for OPEC + to increase output to save oil prices on the rise. Some forecasts show that oil price may skyrocket to $175/barrel in the near future.

Besides, the world oil price was also supported by China continuing to lift the blockade order in big cities such as Beijing, Shanghai… and for industrial production and trade to return to close. as usual.
