The Trans Alaska pipeline restarted its operations, and seems to reduce the pressures for crude oil price to rise in the US (mainly WTI). This news, however, caused a serious reduction in crude oil stocks in the US, and Bloomberg expects a reduction of 500,000 barrels in oil inventories.
The IEA issued its monthly report regarding the 2010 oil consumption and 2011 projections, according to the report:
“Global oil product demand for 2010 and 2011 is revised up by an average of 320 kb/d on higher-than-expected submissions, reflecting buoyant global economic growth and cold northern hemisphere weather. Global oil demand, assessed at 87.7 mb/d in 2010 (+2.7 mb/d year-on-year), rises by 1.4 mb/d to 89.1 mb/d in 2011.“
