TFA Energy Morning Highlights – 5/24/2023

Crude oil futures in European trading hours Wednesday were higher for a third straight session after Saudi Arabia’s Energy Minister triggered a ‘relief rally’ after issuing a warning to short sellers.
The Saudi Minister said, “I keep advising them that they will be ouching – they did ouch in April”, which analysts took as a signal the Kingdom is not comfortable with oil near the low-$70s and will likely support further production cuts if it looks like oil prices could be heading back to the mid-$60s.
“A warning to markets from Saudi Arabia triggered a relief rally in crude oil. Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman told oil speculators to “watch out”, raising the specter of OPEC further intervening in the oil market to support prices,” said Saxo in its latest client note.
"Once again, he reiterated that OPEC+ through its actions seeks stability more than targeting a certain price level or range," added Saxo.
Markets also found support from American Petroleum Institute data released late Tuesday, which revealed a fall in US commercial crude inventories of 6.8 million barrels last week, while gasoline stocks fell by 6.4 million barrels and distillate stocks posted 1.8-million-barrel draw.
