Oil Drifts Lower After Record Jump Amid Doubts Over Output Deal
(Bloomberg) -- Oil slipped below $25 a barrel following a record surge as doubts crept in over U.S. President Donald Trump's claim he had brokered a deal that would see deep supply cuts from Saudi Arabia and Russia.Futures advanced almost 25% in New York on Thursday after Trump tweeted that he expected the two leading producers to slash output by 10 million barrels or more. However, the Kremlin later said that President Vladimir Putin had not spoken to his Saudi counterpart and hasn't agreed to reduce production.

Trump Eyeing a Global Oil Output Cut of 10 Million Barrels a Day
(Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump is trying to get the world to cut oil production by 10 million barrels a day in an effort to end a market-share war that sent crude prices plunging to the lowest levels in two decades.Earlier on Thursday, Trump shocked markets by tweeting that he expected Russia and Saudi Arabia alone to cut about 10 million barrels -- or roughly a tenth of global petroleum, sending oil prices soaring. A person familiar with the discussion later said that Trump, after a call with Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was hoping to get other oil market participants to contribute to that cut, too. A second person familiar with the situation said Trump's goal is purely aspirational and will ultimately hinge on whether Saudi Arabia and Russia can reach a deal.Any across-the-board reduction of this size will face serious challenges. Saudi Arabia hasn't voiced outright support for the move and instead called for an "urgent meeting" of the world's oil producers to discuss a "fair agreement." The response signals the country will only cut output if others do so and raises the question of whether the Trump administration is willing to cap America's own production to reach a global accord.Russia's response was arguably harsher. In his tweet, Trump said he had spoken to MBS, who had in turn spoken with Russian President Vladimir Putin. But a Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said the conversation hadn't happened and confirmed that no production cut had been agreed to with the Saudis.

Trump's Push for Huge Deal to Cut Oil Supply Draws Disbelief
(Bloomberg) -- With just one tweet, U.S. President Donald Trump conjured up the prospect of a global oil alliance to rescue the industry from the worst shock in history. The question is whether it evaporates just as quickly.After the president's social-media intervention on Thursday, oil traders are frantically assessing whether Saudi Arabia, Russia and possibly even the U.S. -- the world's three biggest producers -- are poised to strike a once-unthinkable grand bargain to cut daily supplies in unison by 10 million to 15 million barrels.It's unclear whether it's feasible -- or even legal -- for such a coalition to come together. Or indeed whether it would be enough to tame the tsunami of unwanted crude now bearing down on world markets, which could be two to three times bigger than the cut touted by Trump."It's too little, too late," said Ed Morse, head of commodities research at Citigroup Inc. "Cuts are required immediately, and unless they happen, the price is going to go down significantly and force them to happen."There's no doubt that the industry could benefit from some intervention. With global oil demand slashed roughly a third by the coronavirus pandemic, a gusher of surplus crude threatens to overwhelm the world's storage tanks in a matter of months. The meltdown is exacerbated by the dispute between Moscow and Riyadh, prompting the Gulf kingdom to push unprecedented volumes of crude at customers in a tussle for market share.Texas Two-StepTrump's claim that the two belligerents are ready to end their pri
