Oil fees maintain to remain below strain as the number of COVID-19 cases round the sector is ultimate in on 14.5 million and more than 600,000 have died which may additionally further pressure lock-downs globally and in flip have an effect on oil prices within the brief time period. While US oil manufacturing has settled at eleven mbpd, the drop inside the range of rigs also appears to have halted that’s limiting the present day upside in fees.
