The longer we wait to reach that target, the more the running five-year average increases and represents bloated inventories.

Meanwhile, the report also presented the country's heavy oil price to be $60.87 in December, an increase of $1.6 or 2.7 percent from $59.27 in November.

"The upside is now limited for oil prices", said Fawad Razaqzada, market analyst at brokerage Forex.

Oil's slump is over - hail the return of triple-digit crude!

This is no surprise given what we already knew about oil inventory levels coming back down. In the second quarter there will be a stronger build-up of oil stocks, including in the U.S. when consumption is declining.

Let me show you what I mean... The prices have reacted, and Brent oil futures reached 70.05 United States dollars per barrel on January 11, which was the highest level since December 2014.

Formal U.S. data on supplies is published midway through the morning by the Energy Information Administration.

The normal seasonal move is an increase - which happens about two-thirds of the time.

The oil producers will officially review their agreement in June and may start to cut quotas in the second half of the year.

So Exactly What Is Happening Here?

For 2019, EIA expects USA production to increase to an average of 10.8 million bpd and to surpass 11 million bpd in November next year.

The big support behind this really came from the promised 1.8 million barrels per day cuts from OPEC and allied nations. Lukoil chief executive Vagit Alekperov believes that Russian Federation should start smoothly exiting the agreement if prices remain at $70 per barrel for more than half a year. Kotak Institutional Equities said in a note on 8 December that it expects 23% growth in net profit of Nifty firms in fiscal 2019 and 17% in fiscal 2020, led by better operating conditions in many sectors such as banking, pharmaceuticals and telecom, which had deteriorated sharply over fiscal years 2016-18.

It's the global producers that are causing the shakeup.

The highly anticipated monthly echoes other forecasts released this month, including one from the U.S. Energy Department. But rising prices have also given shale producers an incentive to ramp up production, analysts say.

Although the total volume is lower year-on-year, the share of refined products accounted for 19 percent of total exports in October, up from around 13 percent a year earlier.

However, besides the global growth, all other are short-term impacts.

"It is costing more to rehire skilled workers owing to a tightened labor market and the availability of equipment", OPEC said. Stockpiles at Cushing, Oklahoma, declined 4.18 million barrels last week, and the ninth straight decline in overall US inventories marked the longest-ever stretch of winter draws. Prices are set for a 1.4% decline this week.
