Crude Production Took a Hit from Hurricane Laura

Crude Production Took a Hit from Hurricane Laura

September 8, 2020

Due to Hurricane Laura, Crude Oil Production decreased by 1.1 million barrels per day to 9.7 million barrels per day, according to the latest EIA supply/demand report.

A large crude stocks draw was also reported, and yet prices fell as it became clear that the sharp drop in domestic crude supplies and production would be temporary.  The production in the Gulf of Mexico appears to be quickly recovering after Hurricane Laura, so prices sold off.
