Oil Fundamentals Tightening Entering 3Q 2014 with Seasonal Demand Growth Increasing and Geopolitical Risks Impacting Supply Availability

Summary

Report depicts the significant increase in seasonal oil demand levels during the second half of the year compared to the first half and potential risks to oil supply that could impact crude oil and product pricing levels. The premium associated with geopolitical supply risk is increasing with continued uncertainty over events occurring in the Middle East specifically the escalation in conflict between the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) and the Maliki Government in Iraq as well as the looming deadline between the P5+1 and Iran over the nuclear issue with the interim deadline set to expire on July 20. Report also highlights over key events impacting crude oil supply including upstream maintenance activities and discusses how some unanticipated events can further exacerbate a tight demand / supply situation in the last half of this year. Report also forecast a change in global inventory position in over the last six month of 2014 based on OPEC production quota levels agreed to at their recent meeting and questions whether current available surplus capacity in OPEC would be effective should product / exports from Iraq be pulled from the marketplace due to continued fighting and damage to key export oriented infrastructure facilities in Iraq.

Report also reflect market sentiment based on forward crude oil market still in backwardation.

- Seasonal Global Oil Demand Levels by Quarter for 2012, 2013 and forecast for 2014.
- Reflects seasonal increase of approximately 2MMBD in last half of the year compared to first half of the year.

- North Sea field maintenance activities during third quarter reducing light sweet crude oil supplies and possibility of hard to forecast events such as hurricane in Gulf of Mexico that could impact both upstream / downstream facilities.
- OPEC production levels and is it sufficient to meet increasing demand levels in last half of 2014.
- U.S. dependence on Middle East crude imports is minimal and can “easily” be replaced.

Reasons to buy

- The report will enhance your understanding of the supply risks over the last half of 2014 and probability of further price increases as Middle East continues to deteriorate
- OPEC African production unlikely to increase in 2014 and could further decline in Nigeria
- Even as U.S. continues to reduce Middle East imports, price impact to U.S. consumers is based on Global (not regional) events and thus gasoline prices can / will increase from reduced global supply
