Category Region Price
Crude Oil Feedstock USA 73.01 USD/Barrel (WTI)
Crude Oil Feedstock India 72.5 USD/Barrel (WTI)
Crude Oil Feedstock Germany 77 USD/Barrel

The latest price of crude oil WTI per barrel in the US at the quarter ending December 2023 was USD 73.01 barrel. In the US, the crude oil prices have been bearish due to the mounted inventory levels, inadequate demand, and uncertainty surrounding OPEC+ policies. Furthermore, the easing of US sanctions on Venezuela has initiated several opportunities for Indian refiners to access economical crude oil, potentially reshaping their import landscape.

The price trend for crude oil in India reached 72.5 USD/Barrel in December 2023. The Indian government increased the windfall tax on domestic crude oil sales, which further disturbed the prices in the country. As per the reports, Bharat Petroleum Corporation, Indian Oil Corporation, and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation decreased their fuel prices during this timeframe.

Germany is one of the major consumers of crude oil in Europe. The country witnessed a moderate decline in demand owing to the slowdown in its manufacturing sector.

Product Description

Crude oil, often referred to as "black gold," is a vital commodity that fuels economies worldwide. It is a naturally occurring hydrocarbon mixture extracted from beneath the Earth's surface through drilling processes. This versatile substance serves as the primary source of energy for various sectors, including transportation, manufacturing, and heating.

The global crude oil market is characterized by its dynamic nature, influenced by a myriad of factors such as geopolitical tensions, supply and demand dynamics, technological advancements, and environmental regulations. Geopolitical events in oil-rich regions, like the Middle East, can disrupt production and supply chains, leading to fluctuations in prices. Additionally, decisions made by major oil-producing nations and organizations, such as OPEC, can significantly impact global oil prices through production quotas and supply agreements.

Economic factors also play a crucial role in shaping the crude oil market. Global economic growth, industrial production levels, and consumer demand directly influence oil consumption patterns. Moreover, currency exchange rates, inflation rates, and monetary policies affect the purchasing power of consumers and, consequently, oil demand.

Technological advancements in extraction techniques, such as hydraulic fracturing and offshore drilling, have expanded the world's oil reserves and production capacities. However, environmental concerns and the push for sustainable energy sources have led to increased scrutiny of the oil industry's environmental impact. As a result, there's a growing emphasis on developing cleaner technologies and reducing carbon emissions associated with oil extraction and consumption.
