Sad news as Nigeria crude oil prices crash

More crushing news for Nigeria came from the oil market on Tuesday as prices for oil futures tumbled.

Brent crude closer to Nigeria’s Bonny Light dropped below $40 a barrel for the first time since June.
US crude additionally plunged over 8%.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude dropped $3.42 or 8.6%, to $36.35 at 11:33 AM EDT (1533 GMT), least since June 15. Brent unrefined fell $2.46, or 5.9%, to $39.55 a barrel.

This advancement came after Saudi Arabia cut its October selling costs in the midst of an erupt of Covid cases far and wide.

Covid infections are ascending in India, Great Britain, Spain and a few pieces of the United States, where the disease rate has not gone under control for a considerable length of time.

The bounce back in sicknesses could debilitate the worldwide monetary recuperation and sap fuel request.

Both oil benchmarks have dipped under the reaches they were exchanging all through August. Brent is falling for a fifth day and has lost over 10% since the finish of August.

“The streak of losses is driven by a stalling crude demand outlook for the rest of the year,” said Paola Rodriguez-Masiu, analyst at Rystad Energy.

On Monday, crude fell after Saudi Arabia’s state oil company Aramco cut the October official selling prices for its Arab light oil, a sign demand may be softening.

Still, oil has recovered from historic lows hit in April, thanks to a record supply cut by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies, known as OPEC+.

The producers are meeting on Sept. 17 to review the market.
