Highlights 

  • Saudi Aramco lowered its February prices of all crude oil grades, for its Asian customers.
  • Oil prices have risen again on easing investor concerns over Omicron’s spread impacting economic recovery.

The world’s largest oil firm, Saudi Aramco, lowered its February prices of all crude oil grades for its Asian customers on Thursday. It reduced its Arab Light grade for February, by about US$ 1.10, to US$ 2.20 per barrel.

The cut was though lower than analysts estimated cut of US$ 1.25, according to a recent Bloomberg survey.

The move comes just days after OPEC+ agreed to increase its supply in February by about 400,000 barrels per day, despite forecasting the market would face an oversupply in January.

Crude oil WTI February 2022 prices were trading higher by 1.73 per cent at USD 79.19.  Brent oil March futures were higher by 1.41 per cent at USD 81.94, on 6 January at 11:05 AM.

Brent’s prices were above USD 80 per barrel as investor concerns eased over the spread of the Omicron variant affecting global economic recovery.

However, OPEC+ maintained a cautious outlook thus leaving an option to hold the rise in output in case the demand sees a drop or significant amounts of oil are in storage.
