BAD NEWS FOR OPEC

BAD NEWS FOR OPEC

BRENT OIL PRICES JUNE 2012 - JUNE 2017

WTI OIL PRICES JUNE 2012 - JUNE 2017

BOE - As oil prices sag despite OPEC's renewed efforts to shore up world crude markets, Wall Street banks have more bad news for the producer group: the outlook for next year isn't great either.

Oil futures have lost 8 percent since the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies agreed on May 25 to keep output constrained through the first quarter of 2018 in a bid to clear a global glut. While Goldman Sachs Group Inc. expects their strategy to ultimately succeed, they warn the surplus may re-appear once the curbs end. Morgan Stanley and JPMorgan Chase & Co. say the group will have little choice but to stick with the cuts even longer.

Resurgent supplies from U.S. shale drillers and fading growth in fuel demand mean that world oil markets could face another overhang next year, the banks predict. That means Saudi Arabia and Russia, the two biggest producers in the 24-nation coalition, may need to deliver on their promise to do "whatever it takes" to restore equilibrium.

"If OPEC wants to keep the market balanced next year, they will probably need to extend the production cut to all of 2018," Martijn Rats, managing director at Morgan Stanley in London, said by email. "Demand growth has slowed somewhat recently, and with U.S. production growing strongly, there doesn't seem to be much room for OPEC production to grow in 2018."

SLOW RECOVERY

Production cuts are taking longer than expected to eliminate the surplus as U.S. shale drillers boost production with surprising speed. American oil explorers, having learned to operate more efficiently during a two-year market slump, have restored almost all the output lost during the downturn. As a result, the market may be unable to absorb the return of production halted by OPEC and its partners when their pact ends in April.

"The market isn't able to see how OPEC exits production cuts without creating huge surpluses in 2018," said Jeff Currie, head of commodities research at Goldman Sachs in New York. "We see risks for a renewed surplus later next year if OPEC and Russia's production rises to their expanded capacity and shale grows at an unbridled rate."

Still, even if a surplus re-emerges in 2018, OPEC's current efforts to deplete stockpiles will make their task of managing it easier, according to Citigroup Inc.

While shale's recovery means next year's supply situation "looks weighty," OPEC's output cuts now mean that if inventories accumulate again, it would be from a lower level, said Ed Morse, head of commodities research at Citigroup in New York.

Those increases in inventories may nonetheless prove substantial enough to prevent prices gaining, said David Martin, an analyst at JPMorgan, who slashed his 2018 forecast for Brent crude by $10 a barrel to $45 on May 25. Brent traded near $49 a barrel on the ICE Futures Europe exchange in London on Friday.

Even if OPEC extends their output accord for all of next year, it may only succeed in stopping further stockpile increases, he said.

"OPEC may be shackled to its deal for a long time," said Martin.

BAHRAIN'S GDP UP 3.2%

IMF - Output grew by 3.8 percent in 2017, underpinned by a resilient non-hydrocarbon sector, with robust implementation of GCC-funded projects as well as strong activity in the financial, hospitality, and education sectors. The banking system remains stable with large capital buffers. Growth is projected to decelerate over the medium term.

NIGERIA'S GDP UP 2%

IMF - Higher oil prices and short-term portfolio inflows have provided relief from external and fiscal pressures but the recovery remains challenging. Inflation declined to its lowest level in more than two years. Real GDP expanded by 2 percent in the first quarter of 2018 compared to the first quarter of last year. However, activity in the non-oil non-agricultural sector remains weak as lower purchasing power weighs on consumer demand and as credit risk continues to limit bank lending.
