  • Oil inventories continue to tighten, keeping spot oil prices elevated above $70/bl

  • US shale supply growing as expected, though Permian infrastructure constraints have emerged, which will limit growth in 2019 
  • OPEC now raising production to prevent an oil price spike, in the face of collapse in Venezuelan production and renewal of sanctions against Iran 
  • Free cashflow generation improving for energy equities, with capital discipline generally being rewarded by the market over growth
