Fundamentals: Libya’s eastern state-owned oil firm has revealed that current crude output stands at around 290,000 bpd. This comes after it was announced that three tankers are set to load a combined 1.7 million bbls of oil from the eastern ports of Hariga and Zueitina this week. Production of Angolan Saturno crude resumed over the weekend following a power cut a week earlier but the force majeure on the exporting of this grade remains in place. Reuters has reported that BP is to carry out planned maintenance in the second of half of June at its North Sea Sullom Voe oil terminal with some loadings still taking place. Moreover, it revealed that no maintenance was scheduled during the same period at its Forties pipeline. Meanwhile, speculators have trimmed net length in ICE Brent by 3,760 lots to 185,611 in the week ended March 17.
