What do the three people above have in common? This is a great story of Christmas cheer.
The first guy (the Saudi Oil negotiator) called the guy in the middle (Santa Claus) to bring the last guy (an oil executive) a very merry Christmas present! The OPEC oil deal was agreed upon in principal yesterday. This will result in 1.32 million barrels of oil not leaving the market for at least six months. The effect was immediate and profound on a languishing oil market.
At 12:00 AM this morning, Brent Crude had broached the $51.00 mark per barrel, and the West Texas Intermediate was above $50.00 a barrel. Remember that our production
taxes are set on the expectation of $42.00 a barrel oil. This is a great solidification. However, it's also time to "remember the bad stuff" in this article. Just like the tinsel and lights of Christmas, the excitement will come down on this deal, and there will undoubtedly be cheating and other things occurring. What this means is that the accord will probably not
work as intended, but for now, enjoy the thought that we may actually have a collection in the state that exceeds prediction. Please no Snoopy dances, though. This can break down.
This article will probably shock you in that it does not contain one single graph, calculation or any other kind of number. However, it does relate directly to them.
