Oil prices are rebounding dramatically this morning, accelerating gains from last night’s across the board inventory draw reported by API, after US SecState Blinken (and NATO’s Stoltenberg) claimed that there are no signs that Russia is withdrawing (and remember today was ‘invasion day’ according to the mainstream media).

“Market participants are still willing to pay a sizable premium for oil that is deliverable at short notice,” said Carsten Fritsch, an analyst at Commerzbank AG.

Will an unexpected crude build spook oil traders or a big draw lift prices back to Biden-crushing highs?

API

  • Crude -1.076mm (-220k exp)

  • Cushing -2.382mm

  • Gasoline -923k (-900k exp)

DOE

  • Crude +1.12mm (-220k exp)

  • Cushing -1.90mm

  • Gasoline -1.33mm (-900k exp)

  • Distillates -1.552mm (-1mm exp)

U.S. Gulf refiners cut runs to 83.5%, the lowest since October after a cold spell cut off power to four major refiners.

Cushing stocks extend their plunge back towards operational low levels, dropping to the lowest level since Sept 2018 (adding to global inventory tightness fears). Notably, this low level of inventories at the biggest storage hub in the country is one reason why prompt timespreads are soaring.
