WoodMac: $100 Price Cap On Products Won’t Cripple Russian Refiners

Oil news - 4 hours 43 min ago
The Western-invoked price cap on Russian refined products coming into effect on February 5 won’t “severely impact” Russian refiners, WoodMac said on Tuesday.

China May Have Big Impact On European Gas Prices Next Winter

Oil news - 4 hours 43 min ago
    Nearly a month into 2023, Europe’s energy outlook is far more positive than many analysts predicted at the onset of winter.
