Fundamentals: A seasonal drop in demand, particularly from Asian buyers, has been blamed for what is expected to be a sharp drop in Iranian crude oil exports in September to a six-month low of 1.02 mbpd. China has announced that it has granted five privately-owned domestic refineries crude oil import quotas amounting to almost 400,000 bpd in another move aimed at opening up the sector to more competition. Kuwait has claimed that it will increase its oil production by 250-270,000 bpd by year-end to make up for lost output from the closure of the Khaji and Wafra oilfields. Meanwhile, net speculative length in ICE Brent crude was barely changed in the week to September 1 with financial managers trimming bets by 722 lots to 140,660 contracts.
