中国石化新闻网讯 据世界石油网站4月5日伦敦报道 西德克萨斯中质原油期货几乎没有变化，预计将出现第五周上涨。欧佩克在三月份削减了四个月的产量，而不受该战略约束的成员国的供应风险正在上升。上个月困扰某OPEC成员国的电力故障据说已经使原油产量减少了一半。
位于瑞士楚格的咨询公司Petromatrix GmbH董事总经理Olivier Jakob说：“周末的主要风险是某国的军事风险，此举可能只是一种武力表现，但我们预计市场将越来越注意到周末的风险。”

Crude has surged >35% in 2018 as OPEC+ limit output
West Texas Intermediate futures were little changed, poised for a fifth weekly increase. OPEC cut production for a fourth month in March, while supply risks are mounting in member nations exempt from the strategy. Power failures that plagued one country last month were said to have briefly slashed crude output by half.Crude has surged more than 35% this year as the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies limit their output to counter record volumes from U.S. shale producers. Escalating tensions in Libya, the economic unraveling of Venezuela and the possibility that the White House won’t extend waivers for buyers of Iranian oil threaten to tighten supply further.
“The main risk for the weekend is the military risk in a certain country,” said Olivier Jakob, managing director at consultants Petromatrix GmbH in Zug, Switzerland. “The move could be just a show of force but we expect the market to take increasing notice of this weekend risk.”
WTI for May delivery slipped 13 cents to $61.97/bbl on the New York Mercantile Exchange as of 1:05 p.m. London time. Prices dropped 0.8% over the previous two sessions, and are up 3% this week.
Brent for June settlement fell 28 cents to $69.12/bbl on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange, after briefly topping $70 for the first time since November in the previous session. The global benchmark crude was at a premium of $7.06 to WTI for the same month.
