WTI Extends Losses After Massive Product Inventory Build, New Record Production

Oil prices are extending losses after last night’s surprise crude build reported by API, with WTI trading below $58 following OPEC’s latest forecasts suggesting a weaker outlook for global oil markets this year as surging supplies from competitors from Norway to Guyana threaten the group’s efforts to defend crude prices.


  • Crude +1.1mm (-1.1mm exp)

  • Cushing -69k (-1.0mm exp)

  • Gasoline +3.2mm  (+3.4mm exp)

  • Distillates +6.78mm (+1.1mm exp)


  • Crude -2.55mm (-1.1mm exp)

  • Cushing +342k (-1.0mm exp)

  • Gasoline +6.678mm (+3.4mm exp)

  • Distillates +8.171mm (+1.1mm exp)

The prior week was dominated by a surprise crude build and huge product inventory builds. This week saw crude inventories drop modestly (-2.55mm) but gasoline and distillates inventories soar (and the first Cushing build in 9 weeks)
