Fundamentals: In its latest monthly report, the IEA has upwardly revised its 2015 global oil demand growth by 90,000 bpd to 1.08 mbpd while also trimming its estimate of 2015 US crude output growth by 50,000 bpd to 550,000 bpd. Moreover, it has left the forecasted 2015 call on OPEC unchanged at 29.5 mbpd despite its calculations that the cartel’s output surged to a near two year-high of 31.02 mbpd in March. With OPEC recently hinting that it was open to a collaborative cut in production with non-OPEC producers, Russia’s Deputy PM has announced that it was holding “unprecedented” talks with the cartel but did not go into further detail. Meanwhile, Chinese implied oil demand rose by 7.6% last month to 10.53 mbpd according to Reuters.
