Crude Oil Closes Higher After Saudi Arabia Pushes for Production-Cut Extension

Apr WTI crude oil (CLJ19) on Monday closed up +$0.57 (+0.97%) per barrel and May Brent crude (CBJ19) closed up +$0.38 (+0.57%). Apr RBOB gasoline (RBJ19) closed up +2.51 cents per gallon (+1.35%). Comments from Saudi Arabian Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih gave the energy complex a boost Monday with Apr WTI crude at a 4-month high and Apr RBOB gasoline at a 4-3/4 month high when he said that OPEC+ members are conforming well to the crude production cuts they agreed to in January and that compliance with the cuts will easily exceed 100 percent in March. He added that the oil market is getting tighter, but not by enough to reverse the cuts, and that OPEC+ may wait until June to decide whether to extend the cuts into the second half of 2019. A decline in the dollar index to a 2-week low Monday was another bullish factor for energy prices. Crude oil prices also have carry-over support from last Friday's weekly data from Baker Hughes that showed U.S. active oil rigs in the week ended March 15 fell by -1 rig to a 10-1/2 month low of 833 rigs. On the bearish side, Libya said its Sharara oil field, the country's biggest, is expected to increase production to 320,000 bpd from the current 238,000 bpd within 10 days once repairs in some wells are completed.
