  • Crude oil flat after recent pullback

This would be bullish for crude prices, analysts said. But within the next couple of months, prices are likely to drop below $60 per barrel as markets digest the fallout of the U.S. steel tariffs and the implications of further retaliation from countries most affected by the ongoing trade war-which many think was unnecessary, especially in the wake of a global economic upturn in the last few years-leading to a bearish trend reversal in global crude-oil markets.

The June crude oil futures were up 3 cents to 67.73 at 10 a.m. EDT. The country's exports are expected to fall slightly in June to 1.796 million bpd, compared with the 1.895 million bpd in May's revised export programme.

That's nearly 10 million barrels above the five-year average.

Reuters had on Monday quoted traders as saying that the relatively high oil prices, coupled with the surging USA output, were making it harder to sell Russian, Nigerian and other oil grades in Europe, where the United States oil flooded.

Such figures would usually weigh on prices, but the market appears to be much more focused on the possibility of new sanctions against Iran. "In the first quarter, we increased cash returns to shareholders, reduced debt, exceeded our production guidance, continued to lower our costs and announced two significant oil discoveries offshore Guyana - Ranger and Pacora". Official data from the US EIA will be released later today. Analysts polled by S&P Global Platts predicted a decline of 1.1 million barrels in crude stockpiles and 500,000 in gasoline supplies for last week.
