Headline crude oil prices fell back on concerns that oil demand growth will be swamped by even bigger increases in production this year. International benchmark Brent shed $3.16 per barrel over the week to close at $81.59/bbl Thursday, losing all the gains of the previous week and more. US domestic price-pin West Texas Intermediate dropped $2.44/bbl to finish at $75.72/bbl. Crude’s forward curves are certainly reflecting a looser market. WTI is now in contango on the front, with the prompt-month trading at a discount to later-dated contracts signaling a well-supplied market. Brent is still backwardated but the premium for prompt delivery is becoming less steep.
