Discussing OPEC+ Extending Output Cuts and the Attack on Saudi Arabia's Ras Tanura Terminal
Brent Crude breached 70 USD a barrel earlier this Monday, days after OPEC and friends decided to maintain current production cuts as is. But a drone attack on Saudi Arabia's Ras Tanura Export Terminal also roiled oil markets. Dave Ernsberger, Head of Pricing and Market Insight at S&P Global Platts, joined us on Prime Time to discuss how these two events are shaping crude oil markets, along with the group's overall outlook on where crude prices may be heading.

Market View: What OPEC+'s New Output Agreement Will Mean for Oil Markets

Dave Ernsberger, Head of Commodities Pricing at S&P Global Platts, spoke to us about whether this is a risky move, what he makes of major oil producers scaling back exploration activities, and the role Chinese demand and falling US oil rigs play in the broader market landscape.

The State of Oil Ahead of OPEC+'s Planned Output Cuts
May 1 marks the day that OPEC+ initiates these massive output cuts of 9.7M barrels a day, in an effort to stabilize crude markets that have seen price wars, negative prices and a collapse in demand. Dave Ernsberger, Head of Pricing and Market Insight at S&P Global Platts, joined us to talk about Thursday's jump in oil prices, if hope is warranted for these oversupply fears to ease, and why OPEC and friends may have more incentives to comply with supply cuts now more than before.
