“We estimate that a large scale CTA selling program is nearing completion across the complex.”

“Libya's oil production is sitting at its lowest levels since the Arab Spring, therefore, any sign of a deal to restore nearly 1m bpd of production could add fuel to the fire in energy markets as the market is already struggling to cope with demand concerns and oversupply.”
