OPEC Leaving Tough Decisions For The Future

In its meeting on June 2, OPEC+ agreed to speed up its production hikes, pledging to add 648,000 barrels a day in July and August, about 200,000 more than it had signaled.

This move was mildly positive politically, helping to paper over fraught US-GCC relations, and may also be a precondition for a set of bilateral meetings. But the increase is small compared to the rising demand. It also puts off the tough decisions about how and whether to reallocate production away from those members who are struggling to meet targets.

Strong GDP growth, improving governance, and limiting the rise in public debt have been key factors for the few emerging market (EM) sovereigns that have bucked the trend and seen net upgrades over the past 10 years.

At Fitch Ratings, the average EM Long-Term Foreign-Currency Issuer Default Rating has declined by 1.3 notches in the 10 years to end-August 2021 to ‘BB’, or by 0.9 notches after adjusting for composition effects. On both measures, it has fallen further behind the average developed market sovereign rating.

In the global refining industry, has exposed a seismic shift. ⠀

While China’s refineries forge ahead with capacity expansion, many western-based refiners have retrenched. As China again slows on stimulus, it is expected to officially surpass the United States as the world’s largest oil refiner, according to the International Energy Agency.⠀

This can be partly explained by China’s head start in recovering from the . While much of the world remains under varying states of lockdown, China’s growth hit 6.5% in the fourth quarter of 2020, meaning that it grew 2.3% for the full year. It is the only major economy to have expanded in 2020.⠀
