What Is Behind The Surge Of Russian Oil Exports To India?

In the first five months of 2017, Indian companies have purchased more than 1 million tons of Russian crude supplied from Black Sea ports. In and of itself, there would be nothing extraordinary about it, were it not for the almost complete lack of supplies before 2017. India already surpassed its average Urals imports twentyfold (the past few years’ annual import volumes lingered around a mere 50ktpa) and is on course to increase the ratio higher still.

Equatorial Guinea Joins OPEC

Equatorial Guinea has become the 14th member of OPEC on the day the cartel announced a nine-month extension of its November 2016 crude oil production cut.
