    Eni CEO Sees Oil Market Stabilizing on U.S.-China Trade Deal

    (Bloomberg) -- The partial trade deal that the U.S. reached with China should help make the global oil market more stable, Eni SpA Chief Executive Officer Claudio Descalzi said in a Bloomberg Television interview.The price of crude will average $60 to $65 a barrel in 2020, due partly to the decision earlier this month by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and allied producers to extend and deepen cuts in output, Descalzi said Saturday in Doha.Benchmark Brent crude has ranged this year from an intraday low on Jan. 2 of $52.51 a barrel to a high on April 25 of $75.60. Brent futures finished trading in London on Friday at $65.22 a barrel. The coalition known as OPEC+ is seeking to rein in supply to prop up prices amid higher output from the U.S. and elsewhere as well as forecasts of weakening demand.Descalzi also made the following comments:Liquefied natural gas prices in Europe, the U.S. and Asia are converging and are at a low level. Despite the difficulty in forecasting LNG prices, he said he foresees that they’ll be low.Rome-based Eni, with its partners Total SA and Novatek PJSC, will start drilling in Lebanon’s Block 4 in the first or second quarter of 2020.In war-wracked Libya, Eni’s first priority is the safety of its staff. The company has operations at Libya’s El-Feel oil field, where output resumed last week following a brief halt that state-run National Oil Corp. blamed on criminal activity.\--With assistance from Fiona MacDonald and Giovanni Prati.To contact the reporter on this story: Simone Foxman in Doha at sfoxman4@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Bruce Stanley at bstanley5@bloomberg.net, Sara MarleyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Traders Flock to Burgeoning Petrostate for Taste of Oil Riches

    (Bloomberg) -- Oil traders are packing their bags for a trip to the world’s newest petrostate -- a place they know remarkably little about.At least half a dozen traders from Houston, Geneva and London are set to alight in tropical Guyana this weekend to bid on some of the first oil cargoes produced by the tiny South American nation. Ahead of the journey, the traders wondered aloud if they’re heading to an island (they’re not) and what language is spoken there (English).Their lack of familiarity with the former European colony is a testament to Guyana’s unlikely emergence as an oil state. Long dependent on sugar plantations and bauxite mining, the country was the site of a major crude discovery by Exxon Mobil Corp. in 2015. Now it’s poised to produce more oil than neighboring Venezuela, a founding OPEC member.READ ALSO: The World’s Newest Petrostate Isn’t Ready for a Tsunami of CashGuyana has no experience in trading oil -- and it’s looking to learn the basics from its very first buyer. The government last week sent a letter to refiners around the globe inviting them to bid for 3 million barrels of Liza Blend crude, the light-sweet oil it will start exporting next year. The catch is that the buyer must take the unusual role of handling “all operating and back office responsibilities” related to exporting the crude, according to a document seen by Bloomberg.On top of that, the bids must be offered “face to face” -- in the country’s capital of Georgetown -- starting Monday. Such a voyage is rare for traders, who do most of their business on instant-message platforms and by phone.Oil D’œuvreThe oil world is happy to play along. The three cargoes being offered are an appetizer for a bigger prize. After this sale, part of an “incubation and launching” phase, Guyana plans to sell its crude via long-term contracts. The government will load its first cargo in February, but the first oil will be exported in January by Exxon Mobil, which operates the Liza oil field, according to people with knowledge of the situation. Exxon declined to comment on the shipment of the first oil to reach markets.The Liza field is scheduled to start production this month and will reach 120,000 barrels a day next year. By 2025, it’s expected to ramp up to 750,000 barrels daily. The country, a third of the size of Texas, is poised to produce as much oil as Venezuela in five years. Oil exploration takes place off the coast, in the blue waters of the Atlantic ocean, in ships turned into oil platforms.Guyana’s output boom comes at a trying time for global oil markets. The U.S., Brazil and Norway are all growing production even as the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies cut their own output in a bid to curb a global supply surplus. Guyana’s Liza blend has similar characteristics to grades produced by Nigeria and Angola and is also seen as an alternative to U.S. oil.To contact the reporter on this story: Lucia Kassai in Houston at lkassai@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: David Marino at dmarino4@bloomberg.net, Catherine Traywick, Mike JeffersFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
