Angola Commodities April 2018

Angola: Cabinda crude oil prices break USD 70 per barrel mark in April

The average price of Angola’s Cabinda crude oil jumped from USD 66.6 per barrel (pb) in March to USD 72.0 pb in April. April’s print was 8.1% above the average price observed in the previous month and 37.5% higher in year-on-year terms. The monthly surge in Cabinda Crude oil prices reflected notable developments in international oil markets.

Oil prices rallied in April as markets tightened due to restricted output by participants in the OPEC oil cap deal, amid resilient demand for the black gold on the back of robust global economic growth. Crude oil production among OPEC countries remained virtually flat at 31.93 million barrels per day (mbpd) in April, up marginally from March’s 31.92 mbpd, according to the cartel’s latest monthly oil report released on 14 May.

Oil production in Angola remained steady at 1.5 mbpd in April as production remained flat in mature oil fields. A combination of limited supply, robust demand and mounting geopolitical risks is expected to continue pushing crude prices up—a positive outlook for the oil-dependent Angolan economy.
