“The demand for crude oil is once again worrying international markets, mainly because the recovery of the world economy will depend on how restrictions on mobility will be lifted during the Covid-19 pandemic,” said the MICM on the reasons that led to adjust prices in the local market.
Other aspects that affect said the industrial dispatch; the market is the entry into force of the United States sanctions on Venezuelan oil, which also impact the Dominican Republic. The two types of reference oil globally, West Texas Intermediate and London’s Brent, have risen less than half a percentage point.
“These world benchmark oil types were unable to make significant progress even though US companies will be prohibited from doing business with Venezuela’s state oil company PDVSA, which speaks volumes for the expected impact of the sanctions,” the statement says.
