International benchmark Brent finished the week at a near 12-month low of $76.15 per barrel Thursday, having shed $10.73/bbl. US price-pin West Texas Intermediate lost $9.76/bbl to close at $71.46/bbl. The EU’s embargo on Russian crude went into effect on Dec. 5, and the G7 has agreed to a price cap on Russian crude. Both developments could pose significant disruptions to the global oil market. But aside from a tanker snarl-up in Turkish waters there was surprisingly little impact.
