Monday, December 3, 2018

From the Ministry of Economy of El Salvador report:

During the last two months, the oil and its derivatives production has reached higher figures than expected, this is because the two largest producers, the United States and Saudi Arabia, have recorded figures never seen before. The North American country has produced 11.7 million barrels a day, 100 thousand barrels more than 15 days ago, while its Middle Eastern counterpart and largest producer of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) Saudi Arabia, has raised its production to 11.2 million barrels a day, 400 thousand barrels more than two weeks ago, thus generating an excess of fuel on the international market in relation to current demand.

Another important factor is the high rate of refining by U.S. fuel companies, which during the last week of November have maintained a 96% productivity compared to two weeks ago, which was 92%. With this increase there is an overproduction that affects the price reduction of liquid fuels, so that El Salvador benefits from a third decrease of fuel nationally an extra fortnight.

From the report of the Ministry of Economy of El Salvador:

The current reference prices for gasoline and diesel show a mixed trend (ups and downs), these variations are due to the continuous fall in the reserves of these products, according to reports provided by the IEA in February 2020. The reserves for gasoline have reduced 2.16 million barrels, likewise for diesel, its reserves have decreased 4.16 million barrels, along with a lack of oil production, which in its last week barely paid to its reserves 414 thousand barrels, causing international prices to fluctuate.
