JAKARTA (Bloomberg): Harga minyak mentah menguat ke level tinggi selama tiga pekan setelah sebuah laporan menunjukkan bahwa persediaan bahan bakar di AS turun seiring melonjaknya konsumsi bensin.

Departemen Energi AS melaporkan bahwa pasokan bahan bakar turun 2,65 juta barel menjadi 219 juta, level terendah tahun ini. Menurut analisis 17 analis, persediaan bahan bakar diprediksikan jatuh 500.000 barel. Permintaan akan bensin meningkat 1,6% mnjadi 20 juta barel per hari, level tertinggi sejak 30 Januari 2009.

Harga kontrak minyak mentah untuk pengiriman di bulan Juli menguat US$1,75 atau 2,4% menjadi US$74,61 per barel di bursa komoditas New York Mercantile Exchange, level tertinggi sejak 12 Mei. Harga kontrak ini jatuh 6% tahun ini dan naik 13% dibandingkan setahun yang lalu.

Harga bahan bakar menguat 5,51 sen atau 2,7% untuk mengakhiri perdagangan pada level US$2,0812 per gallon di New York, level tertinggi sejak 14 Mei.

Permintaan bahan bakar motor menguat 0,8% menjadi 9,17 juta barel per hari pada periode mingguan yang berakhir 8 Mei. Konsumsi bahan bakar menguat 1,7% pada periode mingguan yang sama tahun lalu.

Indikasi perbaikan

“Permintaan menguat 20 juta barel per hari untuk pertama kalinya sejak Januari tahun lalu. Berdasarkan standart historis, permintaan memang masih lemah tahun ini, namun ini merupakan sebuah indikasi perbaikan yang jelas,” ujar Kyle Cooper, direktur pengelola IAF Advisors di Houston.

Menurut laporan Departemen Energi, konsumsi bahan bakar melonjak 8,1% menjadi 19,7 juta barel per hari dibandingkan setahun sebelumnya dalam periode empat mingguan yang berakhir pada 28 Mei.

Pasokan minyak mentah jatuh 1,9 juta barel menjadi 363,2 juta pekan lalu. Menurut estimasi median para analis, persediaan minyak mentah diprediksikan tidak berubah.

Harga minyak mentah juga menguat setelah pemerintah federal mengatakan bahwa produsen minyak harus kembali mengumpulkan rencana pengeboran emas mereka di perairan Teluk Meksiko supaya pengeboran dilakukan kurang dari 500 kaki.

(Reuters) – U.S. crude oil futures rose more than 2 percent on Thursday, supported by much lower than expected crude and gasoline inventory data as the beginning of the summer driving season spurred gasoline demand.

U.S. crude for July settled at $74.61 a barrel, up $1.75. In London, ICE Brent rose $1.66 to settle at $75.32 a barrel.

“The draws in gasoline and crude really stand out right away, which helps boost that market right back up above $73 a barrel,” Tradition Energy analyst Gene McGillian said. “The real question will come here whether we can get through that resistance level of $74.50 to $75 a barrel.”

Crude futures staged a rally after the U.S. Energy Information Administration said crude inventories fell by 1.9 million barrels last week, far more than the consensus expectation for a 100,000-barrel dip.

Gasoline inventories also fell sharply, sliding 2.6 million barrels, the EIA said. Expectations were for a 500,000-barrel fall. Distillates rose slightly more than expected and refinery capacity use fell.

Data from the EIA showed inventories at the U.S. crude oil hub at Cushing, Oklahoma, rose last week to match a record reached two weeks ago, while industry data provider Genscape said supplies were little changed in the week to June 1.

Earlier in the session, rising inventories at Cushing weighed on the front end of the futures curve, after the previous report showed a stockpile slip.

Despite the supportive inventory data, there were signs that global supply was on the rise.

Seaborne oil exports by OPEC, excluding Angola and Ecuador, will rise in the four weeks to June 19, according to Oil Movements, a UK consultancy that tracks future shipments.

Compliance by members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries with promised cutbacks has fallen to 51 percent, according to Reuters estimates.


The U.S. dollar firming against the euro limited oil’s rise.

The dollar’s rise was being attributed to bets for stronger U.S. monthly payroll data on Friday, which would indicate a growing economy and bode well for energy demand. Economists polled by Reuters expected U.S. non-farm payrolls to show the creation of 500,000 jobs.

Dollar strength makes dollar-priced commodities more expensive for holders of other currencies and can redirect investment into foreign exchange trading.

Concern about a slowdown in China’s economic growth had weighed on oil prices this week, hitting sentiment already battered by Europe’s debt crisis.

After collapsing by more than 20 percent from a 2010 high above $87 a barrel in early May, oil prices have found support in the region of $70 to $74, torn between evidence that the world’s biggest oil-consuming nations are posting steady growth in demand and speculation that consumption will be hurt by a stagnant European economy.

“Crude demand will ease slightly ahead of the seasonal pick-up in the second half of this year, but we remain confident it will still grow strongly in 2010,” VTB Capital analyst Andrey Kryuchenkov said.
