The market is increasingly concerned about further recovery in energy demand. In the coming months, the market situation may deteriorate significantly due to the active spread of a new wave of the coronavirus pandemic in Europe and other regions. Investors react extremely negatively to the news about the tightening of quarantine measures in a number of countries, which will negatively affect the pace of economic recovery in these regions and the level of demand for oil and other energy resources.
The reports of an increase in oil supplies from Libya add fuel to the fire. A 9-month blockade was lifted from a number of oil infrastructure facilities and the country is gradually starting to increase supplies to the international market. Libya's National Oil Company expects oil production to rise by more than a quarter of a million barrels per day by next week.
