OPEC & Manipulating Oil Prices

Post by Lobo on Tue 04 Oct 2016, 2:42 pm


The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries’ (OPEC) agreement to cut production is supposed to end Saudi Arabia’s policy of the last to years to pump-at-will. This has sent Middle Eastern economies into a tail-spin and the glut of oil has meant rising taxes and selling bonds to raise capital. With this new claimed reversal of that pump-at-will policy, there are of course the optimists who say oil should now soar, yet they overlook some very critical points. OPEC deals have routinely failed, and there is a real glut of oil in inventories, not to mention the reduction in oil demand rising from electric cars.
The EU first introduced mandatory 2015 CO2 standards for new passenger cars way back in 2009. Mandatory targets for light-commercial vehicles come into play in 2017, which was passed back in 2011. Then by the end of 2013, the EU reached an agreement that will implement mandatory 2020 CO2 emission targets for new passenger cars and light-commercial vehicles. Europe is applying these standards for 95% of vehicles in 2020 with 100% compliance in 2021 and the light-commercial vehicle standards are are required for 2020. Electric cars are becoming commonplace in Europe. Charging stations are seen just about everywhere including in London. This is not the case in the United States. Clearly, demand will decline for oil moving forward.
The optimists also overlook the reality of the oil production countries. OPEC cannot control the 60% of world production outside its membership. The United States is the largest oil producer. In the top five oil producing countries, only Saudi Arabia makes that list as number two. Of the top 10 producing countries, only four are OPEC members. The bottom line; OPEC can not manipulate oil prices any more.
