US Crude oil export expected to change its fundamental Dynamics

Learn how US Crude oil export expected to change its fundamental Dynamics

Read this interesting article on Global crude oil demand. This is a fundamental change in Crude oil demand & it is expected that US may increase the output in days to come and export from Middle East will reduce in days to come. Putting a summary for my reader -


The recent partial lifting of a ban on crude oil exports by the U.S. government has sparked ripples in major oil markets, as it has the potential to drastically change the flow of crude oil around the globe.

Few observation

1) US crude oil exports could spark change in global oil market.

2) U.S. crude oil output is estimated to have jumped 16% year on year in May to 8.4 million barrels a day, the highest level in 26 years. But the massive volume of shale oil output is not necessarily processed smoothly into petroleum products.

3) The U.S. boosted the export of petroleum products and raised crude oil exports to Canada, which has been allowed as a special exclusion from the crude oil export ban. But these efforts have not done much to improve the supply-demand balance.

4) The export of these oil will probably will go to Europe as the region is suffering from light crude oil shortages due to the reduced production in Libya,

Under this scenario of the shale revolution dramatically changing the flow of crude oil around the globe, exports from the Middle East to North America and Europe will fall to zero by 2040
