US Crude Oil Inventory

Crude prices are being held in check by the excess oil inventory overhanging the market. Global crude oil inventory in OECD countries has risen almost 25% over the past two years – and oil pricing will continue to be held in check until the level of oil inventory is worked down.

The oil inventory survey conducted weekly by the EIA provides a convincing indicator that crude stocks in the US are now declining. As shown below, crude oil inventory in the US peaked at the end of March – after increasing over the first thirteen weeks of 2017.   US crude inventory has fallen in twenty three of the twenty eight weeks since March - and over the past sixteen weeks crude inventory has fallen 51 million barrels.   US crude inventory (excluding stock in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve) totaled 457 million barrels as of 13 October.    The increase in inventory in early/mid September was the result of Hurricane Harvey, which shut in production at several refineries and caused US refinery utilization to drop below 80%.  As refinery utilization returned to normal, crude inventory resumed a downward trend in late September.

US inventory data represent trends in only one area of the global oil market. But estimates for global oil inventory are notoriously weak – and industry analysts heavily rely on the weekly US oil inventory data as a surrogate for global inventory movement.

Christian Louboutin fait appel à New York

Le Monde |

Le chausseur français Christian Louboutin a fait appel de la décision d'un juge new-yorkais qui avait estimé, en août, que les semelles rouges n'étaient pas son apanage, a indiqué, jeudi 20 octobre, un de ses avocats, Harley Lewin. M. Louboutin accuse Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) de "concurrence déloyale" et "violation de marque commerciale", après avoir vu apparaître chez son rival à Manhattan des chaussures pour femmes aux semelles -rouges. - (AFP.)
