    Asia Naphtha/Gasoline-Gasoline crack stays under pressure

    “‘We have large volumes of refining capacity geared towards gasoline or naphtha production coming online in the East of Suez this year,’ said Michael Dei-Michei, head of research at consultancy JBC Energy.”

    “‘For that reason we expect gasoline supply growth to outpace demand growth to the tune of about 200,000 bpd on average in 2019,’ said Dei-Michei.”

    Oil Moves Higher on Improving U.S.-China Relations

    “‘Essentially we have gone from pricing a recession back to a more moderate outlook within the span of just six weeks,’ according to analysts at consulting firm JBC Energy. ‘Recent optimism, among other aspects, has probably been built on the perceived improvement in U.S.-Sino relations, as well as China’s efforts to stimulate its economy,’ the analysts wrote in a note Tuesday.”

    “analysts at JBC Energy are pushing back on the many extreme, doomsday predictions made by bullish oil analysts and promoted by forces opposing the OPEC-member’s [Venezuela] socialist government”

    “‘In spite of most people talking about Venezuela being a bullish element for price formation, the average export flows out of the crisis ridden country have trended largely flat,’ in 2018 JBC said. The firm added that most of the supply forecasts for this year ‘have continued declines built in, and we have to wonder if this is still the best bet.’”

    Oil prices decline on swelling oversupply, volatile markets

    Oil Opens 2019 With Losses on Surging Supply, Signs of Economic Slowdown

    “‘We are most likely past the peak of this long economic uptrend,’ consultancy JBC Energy said in an analysis of 2018.”

    “‘Don’t underestimate shale producers and the wider U.S. oil industry in general. Too often this year the market pushed stories … bottlenecks (pipelines, frack crews, truck drivers, etc.), yet U.S. oil production will have grown by a massive 2+ million barrels per day between 1.1.2018 and 1.1.2019,’ JBC Energy said.”

    U.S. oil ekes out a gain as futures close out declines for month, quarter and year

    “‘The key swing producers within OPEC+ do have meaningful spare capacity and are able to use it if they deem it necessary,’ analysts at JBC Energy wrote in a note Monday. ‘That said, it is nonetheless a difficult tool to use correctly in a world where forecasters tend to routinely underestimate U.S. production by several hundred thousand barrels per day.’”

    “‘We are most likely past the peak of this long economic uptrend,’ said analysts at JBC Energy GmbH in Vienna.”
