OIL PRICE: ABOVE $63

OIL PRICE: ABOVE $63

REUTERS, BLOOMBERG  -  Oil prices steadied just below two-year highs on Thursday, supported by supply cuts by OPEC and other major exporters including Russia. 

Benchmark Brent crude oil LCOc1 was unchanged at $63.49 a barrel by 0840 GMT. On Tuesday, Brent reached an intra-day high of $64.65, its highest since June 2015. 

U.S. light crude CLc1 was steady at $56.81, not too far off this week's more than two-year high of $57.69 a barrel. 

Traders said a rally that has pushed up Brent by more than 40 percent since July may have run its course due to increases in U.S. supplies and some indicators of a demand slowdown. 

"Prices may have reached a short-term peak," said Fawad Razaqzada, analyst at futures brokerage Forex.com. 

Prices are still supported by efforts led by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and Russia to withhold supplies in order to tighten the market and prop up prices. 

OPEC will discuss output during a meeting on Nov. 30, and is expected to extend the limits beyond their expiry in March 2018. 

"With the OPEC/non-OPEC deal extension beyond March 2018 a certainty, prices may become stronger and temporarily reach the $65-$70 per barrel range in 2018," said energy consultancy FGE. 

Despite this, many analysts say the price rally of the past months may have run its course, at least for now. 

U.S. crude stockpiles rose 2.2 million barrels in the week to Nov. 3, to 457.14 million barrels, the Energy Information Administration said on Wednesday, contrary to analysts' expectations for a decrease of 2.9 million barrels. 

U.S. crude production inched up 67,000 barrels per day (bpd) to 9.62 million bpd, the highest on record. 

Output looks set to rise further. Texas issued 997 oil and gas drilling permits last month, up nearly 17 percent versus the same month a year ago, the state's energy regulator said on Wednesday. 

Global fuel consumption remains strong, although the latest figures from top importer China were below expectations. 

Key for the last weeks of 2017 is whether traders remain confident about their huge bets on further price rises, or if they sell out, satisfied with recent strong gains. 

"It doesn't matter how bullish the fundamentals are ... when an asset goes vertical there is always room for a pullback and consolidation of recent price moves," said Greg McKenna, chief market strategist at brokerage AxiTrader.

THE LARGEST VENEZUELA'S OIL

U.S. EIA - Venezuela holds the largest oil reserves in the world, in large part because of the heavy oil reserves in the Orinoco Oil Basin. In addition to oil reserves, Venezuela has sizeable natural gas reserves, although the development of natural gas lags significantly behind that of oil. However, in the wake of political and economic instability in the country, crude oil production has dramatically decreased, reaching a multi-decades low in mid-2018.

EUROPE'S NUCLEAR INVESTMENT : €50 BLN

WNN - There are 126 operational power reactors in 14 EU Member States, providing more than one-quarter of the bloc's total electricity production. In its Communication on the Nuclear Illustrative Program (PINC) published last year, the European Commission expects nuclear to maintain its significant role in Europe's energy mix up to 2050. This would require investment of some EUR40-50 billion (USD46-58 billion) in nuclear LTO by 2050.
