WTI Crude Rises in Tight Range as Saudi Arabia Announces Production Reduction

Crude oil prices saw a modest increase in trading on Monday, June 5, following Saudi Arabia’s announcement of an additional 1 million barrels per day production cut. This decision comes in response to the sluggish global economy.

WTI crude futures experienced a rise of 41 cents, settling at $72.15 per barrel, while Brent crude futures climbed 58 cents to settle at $76.71 per barrel.

On Sunday, June 4, the Saudi energy ministry revealed its plans to reduce oil production by 1 million barrels per day starting in July. This move will bring the country’s daily output down from the current 10 million barrels to 9 million barrels, marking Saudi Arabia’s most significant production cut in years.

The voluntary production cuts by Saudi Arabia come in addition to the original agreement of OPEC+ to limit oil supplies until 2024. The aim of these measures is to support a rise in global oil prices.

The news of Saudi Arabia’s decision had a moderate impact on crude oil prices, as traders closely monitor the ongoing developments in the oil market and their potential implications for supply and demand dynamics.
