Oil has a great weekly performance 11% higher

World crude oil prices rose more than 11 percent last week so far because investors were concerned about the less promising prospects for world oil supplies

The previous week’s oil prices had fallen by 4.21% due to profits from investors,
but optimal conditions in different parts of the world forced the price of this commodity to rise again

The unfinished war between Russia and Ukraine remains the main cause of the worsening supply crisis after the West imposed sanctions on Russia.

In the meantime, the decline in oil inventories and the continued economic recovery contributed to enhanced demand

The price of Brent oil jumped 11.78% from the closing position this week to $120.65 per barrel.

In the meantime, the price of West Texas Intermediate crude rose by 8.79% to the US $113.90 per barrel this week

After two consecutive weeks of weakening after soaring due to the effects of the war, world oil managed to recover this week.

Some market watchers say that if Western sanctions on Russian oil are prolonged,
this could lead to a supply crisis in the world, which, of course, could lead to increased inflation

The International Energy Agency warned last week that Russian oil production could cease by 30% within weeks.

It is believed that the world may be under attack from a supply crisis

On the other hand, Morgan Stanley raised its price forecast for Brent crude by the US $20 per barrel for the third quarter of 2022 to the US $120 per barrel,
predicting a decline in the Russian production of about 1 million barrels per day as of April

The Russian oil production decline will be greater than the global demand decline

While Russia and Ukraine remain at war, geopolitical risks in the Middle East are rising again 

Yemeni rebels, the Houthis

claimed to have carried out the attack with drones and missiles on the oil storage facility of Saudi Aramco,

Andrew Lebow, president of Lipow Oil Associates, a Houston-based energy agency, stated that attacks by Yemeni rebels had become more frequent,
noting that “the market should avoid the supply of Russian crude oil and worry about attacks.

There is concern about the impact on Saudi energy

According to multiple media footage, Aramco’s oil tank facility in Jeddah, the western coastal city of Saudi Arabia,
was attacked on the 25th of this month, and fire smoke rose in the sky 

Iranian-backed Yemeni

rebels admitted to the attack, claiming that they used drones and missiles to attack Saudi energy facilities

The Saudi-led coalition said that two oil tanks were on fire as a result of an attack on an oil products distribution station in Aramco,
but fortunately, no one was injured

The coalition immediately launched a military operation on 26, through airstrikes on Yemen,
and Saudi media reported that the move was aimed at “protecting global energy sources and ensuring natural supply chains

The attacks come with rising oil prices since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24 and disrupted global supplies as Russia came under Western sanctions

For his part, a source said that the administration of US President Joe Biden is studying another version of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve,
which, if achieved, may be greater than 30 million barrels sold earlier this month
