Wednesday, January 2, 2019

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

The latest report from 2018, provided by the International Energy Agency (AIE) reports that gasoline reserves experienced a significant increase of slightly more than 3.0 million barrels per week against expert forecasts that predicted a minimum increase of just 50,000 barrels per week. Also, distillates such as diesel, kept their production rate and was almost invariable its trend with respect to the previous week, as it only increased 2,000 barrels in the week, against an expectation of a 500 thousand barrels reduction, which despite the favorable environment for the reduction of such a derivative of oil along with heating, its stability allows prices to be downward, along with those of gasoline.

The boom of unconventional shale extraction, known as fracking, has allowed the prices of distillates for heating and diesel not to increase their price, according to the latest reports provided by the IEA, despite the winter season in the U.S., the high production of oil and derivatives by this means has benefited prices in international markets because fracking is close to 5.5 million barrels per day, being approximately 46% of total U.S. production at the end of 2018.
