Robust US Harvest to Fuel Concerns of Grains Oversupply


Friday, September 14, 2018 / 1:40 PM / FDC    

Brent oil briefly touched $80pb before retreating to $78.23pb. The increase was partly due to concerns over tightening global supply amid potential US sanctions on Iran. 

The reimposition of US sanctions will remain a potential trigger for modest oil price increases in 2018. 

At $78pb, the price of oil is 53% above the budget benchmark ($51pb) and remains supportive of external reserves and naira stability.
