Poland, which receives oil through a northern section of the giant Druzhba pipeline, stopped Russian imports, saying shipments have become contaminated by organic chlorides. Barrels were still flowing through a separate spur feeding several nations in eastern and central Europe. “The level of contamination could cause physical damage to refining facilities,” Poland’s pipeline operator PERN SA said late Wednesday.
The White House plans to choke off oil exports from Iran without triggering a spike in prices largely by getting Saudi Arabia, the only OPEC member with significant spare capacity, to make up the shortfall. Crude prices have already climbed almost 40 percent this year, hitting $75 a barrel in London this week for the first time in six months.
Futures in London rose as much as 1.4 percent, gaining for a fifth session. Saudi Arabia on Wednesday responded to the U.S. move to tighten sanctions on Iran, saying it saw no immediate need for action in the oil market. Brent is set for a fifth straight week of gains, even as a jump in U.S. stockpiles slowed the rally spurred by the removal of sanctions waivers.
While not a mind-blowing move, it is good to see that the Gulf Keystone Petroleum Limited (LON:GKP) share price has gained 24% in the last three months. But spare a thought for the long term holders, who have held the stock as...

The OPEC member will raise output to almost 6 million barrels a day by 2030, overtaking Canada as the world’s fourth-largest producer, as it continues to rehabilitate an oil industry ravaged by decades of conflict and sanctions, the IEA said Thursday. The outlook was downgraded from the agency’s last assessment seven years ago, when it projected Iraq would pump 7.5 million barrels a day by 2030. “Iraq’s potential is huge but the road to increased production is not without obstacles,” said the Paris-based organization, which advises most of the world’s major economies on energy policy.
While Trump’s decision not to extend the Iran sanctions waivers may seem to suggest he is pursuing higher oil prices, his base desperately needs prices to stay low

The kingdom won’t significantly raise output in May and will stay within its OPEC production limit until the group’s current supply deal expires in June, Khalid Al-Falih said Wednesday in Riyadh. Nigeria, a fellow member of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, is “supportive of a six-month extension” in the group’s output cuts, though at levels still to be determined, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources Emmanuel Kachikwu told Bloomberg Television in the Saudi capital.
Trump’s decision to let Iran waivers expire could kill off the OPEC+ deal while dealing a serious blow to the coalition’s ability to coordinate production cuts
As the power disruption shut oil fields, pipelines and ports, bringing oil infrastructure to a halt, state-owned Petroleos de Venezuela SA bought a cargo of crude from fellow OPEC member Nigeria, marking the first oil import since 2014. Almost 1 million barrels of light, sweet Agbami crude is discharging Tuesday, after loading in early April, and may help to offset falling domestic production. PDVSA can also use the lighter oil as a diluent to thin Venezuela’s sludgy crude so it can be more easily extracted from underground reservoirs.
A supertanker laden with U.S. oil is floating off China’s eastern coast, awaiting discharge at one of the Asian nation’s busiest ports. The vessel will soon be joined by more ships that will make the two-month voyage from America as long-simmering trade tensions between Washington and Beijing begin to ease. While refiners in China shunned U.S. oil imports as the nations imposed tit-for-tat tariffs in an escalating trade war, buying interest has resurfaced on optimism that the world’s top-two economies are nearing a resolution to their dispute.
The construction of new LNG terminals in Germany should be seen as a strategic decision rather than a financially sound decision to increase the capacity of natural gas imports
