Demand Disruption to Dominate Crude Market Fundamentals Near-term

Countries around the world shift aggressively to isolation and lockdown in an attempt to limit the spread of the COVID19 virus. As a result, it has become clear that COVID19 related crude demand disruption will have an unprecedented impact on global crude markets for the remainder of 2020, with the most acute disruptions happening over the second and third quarters of the year. On the supply side, as crude storage nears capacity, a shut-in response at a rate never seen before will be necessary to support near-term pricing –an effort that OPEC+ is unlikely to undertake by themselves.
