SINGAPORE, Jan 21, 2011 (AFP)
Oil prices turned higher in Asian trade Friday as market sentiment was buoyed by strong Chinese economic growth last year, analysts said.

New York’s main contract, light sweet crude for March delivery, gained 24 cents to 89.83 dollars per barrel.

Brent North Sea crude for March advanced 18 cents to 96.76 dollars.

Stellar Chinese economic numbers fuelled the crude price rally, said Jason Feer, Asia-Pacific vice-president and general manager of Argus Media in Singapore.

“It’s probably the surprisingly high growth numbers coming out of China, indicating that demand is strong,” he told AFP, referring to the world’s biggest energy consumer.

China said Thursday that its economy grew a blistering 10.3 percent in 2010, marking the fastest annual pace since the onset of the financial crisis in late 2008.

The 2010 figure, up from a revised 9.2 percent growth in 2009, highlighted China’s powerful performance in a year when it overtook Japan to become the world’s second largest economy behind the United States.
OPEC menghadapi tekanan supaya menambah produksi seiring harga minyak di Asia dan Afrika melampaui US$ 100 per barel untuk pertama kali dalam dua tahun terakhir.

Jenis Bonny Light Nigeria, sebagai patokan harga minyak Afrika Barat, naik menjadi US$ 100,12 per barel pada 17 Januari, ini untuk pertama kalinya sejak Oktober 2008 harganya melewati US$ 100 per barel. Sementara, minyak jenis Tapis Malaysia juga mencapai US$ 104,36 sebarel pada pekan lalu.

Pada 18 Januari lalu, International Energy Agency (IEA) menyebut, harga minyak di tiga digit berisiko merusak pemulihan ekonomi. Itu mengindikasikan organisasi negara pengekspor minyak (OPEC) harus meningkatkan produksinya.

Namun, OPEC menanggapinya dengan mengatakan pasokan global cukup untuk memenuhi permintaan, dan baru akan meninjau ulang kuota produksi pada Juni nanti.
