Sube el petróleo por temores de invasión a Ucrania
February 14, 2022 - Los preicos del petróleo están en un máximo en siete años en medio de temores sobre una posible invasión rusa de Ucrania e interrupciones potenciales al suministro.
Comments from the United States about an imminent attack by Russia on Ukraine have rattled global financial markets, according to Reuters.
Russia could invade Ukraine at any time and might create a surprise pretext for an attack, the United States said on Sunday.
The tensions come as the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies, a group known as OPEC+, struggle to ramp up oil production despite monthly pledges to increase output by 400,000 barrels per day (bpd) until March, Reuters said.
Brent crude was up 11 cents, or 0.1%, at $94.55 a barrel by 1107 GMT, after earlier hitting a peak of $96.16, the highest since October 2014.
