Singapore’s offshore and marine industry has been battered by a slump in oil prices over the past few years, cutbacks in exploration and production (E&P) spending, weak charter rates and delayed projects. This has forced a number of players to cut costs and restructure debt.
However, since the start of 2019, WTI crude has gained nearly 30%, and is set for its strongest advance since 2009. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its partners – known as OPEC+ – have reduced output, while US sanctions on Iran and Venezuela have tightened supplies. Over the weekend, OPEC+ met in Azerbaijan to monitor their crude supply reduction pact, and said they would exceed commitments in the coming months. On Sunday, Saudi Arabia signalled that producers may need to extend their 1.2 million barrels per day of supply curbs past June into the second half of the year.
