تراجع أسعار النفط في ظل اضطرابات كوفيد في الصين

By Ninian Carter

November 28, 2022 - أسعار النفط تراجعت في ظل تنامي المخاوف بشأن تراجع الطلب على النفط في الصين بعد ارتفاع عدد الإصابات بفيروس كوفيد19- والاحتجاجات المناهضة للحكومة.

Oil prices have slumped as protests against Covid-19 restrictions in China fuel concerns over demand.

Brent crude and WTI (West Texas Intermediate) crude have fallen by 3% to trade at around $80 and $74 a barrel respectively – their lowest levels in almost a year.

China is the world’s largest importer of crude oil, but growing concerns about weaker fuel demand due to surging Covid-19 cases and political uncertainty caused by rare protests over harsh Covid restrictions, have prompted selling.

OPEC (Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) is due to meet on December 4.
