MCX Crude Oil Overview
Crude oil is a fossil fuel formed over millions of years from the decomposition of fossils buried in the sedimentary layer of the earth’s crust. It is a mixture of different hydrocarbons. Components generally contained in crude oil are Carbon (up to 84%), Hydrogen (up to 14%), and small amounts of Sulphur, nitrogen, oxygen, minerals, and salts.
Up to forty-eight percent of the world’s known and identified oil reserves are located in the Middle Eastern countries. The rest of the oil mining industry is scattered around Africa, North & South America, parts of Europe and Asia. OPEC or the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries controls almost seventy-five percent of the world’s crude oil reserves and more than half of the crude oil traded internationally. The organization plays an essential part in determining the price of crude oil worldwide.
Importance of Crude Oil
Ever since the industrial revolution, the importance of crude oil has risen for all humankind. Crude oil and its derivatives are not only used as fuel to power cars, buses, airplanes, ships, etc. but also play a massive role in the manufacturing of plastic products, synthetic fabrics such as polyester, cosmetics, and fertilizers. Due to the crucial role it plays in creating the urban lifestyle – it is often referred to as ‘black gold.’
Different Types Of Crude Oil
As mentioned above, the quality of crude oil differs according to the composition of hydrocarbons in its natural form. The structure of hydrocarbons, which is unique to each region of oil mining – affects the viscosity, density, and flashpoint of the oil. Some of the most prominent types of crude oil traded internationally are –
- Brent Crude – Low viscosity and sulfur content. Found commonly in the North Sea. Considered similar in quality to WTI.
- Dubai Crude – A dense variety, with high viscosity and sulfur content. They are usually traded in the Middle East.
- West Texas Intermediate (WTI) – This is the most popular type of crude oil traded internationally. Easy to refine due to the lowest viscosity and sulfur content. Known as the ‘light and sweet’ crude oil.
- Bonny Light – This variety of is found in Nigeria. The specifics of Bonny Light are a benchmark for all qualities of crude oil traded internationally from Africa. It is also low in viscosity and sulfur content.
Top producers of Crude Oil
The list of countries producing the most oil is topped by Russia. They deliver upwards of ten billion barrels of crude oil each day. They are closely followed by Saudi Arabia, which also produces a bit more than ten billion barrels every day.

However, it has been estimated that the most abundant natural reserves of crude oil lie in Venezuela. The latest estimate shows that Venezuela may have more than three hundred and sixteen billion barrels of oil reserves in their country. Unfortunately, they lag far behind in the production and export of oil. Other countries with significant oil reserves are Saudi Arabia and Canada – each with close to two hundred million barrels of oil reserves.
Uses of Crude Oil
Some of the essential uses or benefits are as below –
To produce energy: When burnt, it produces heat and energy, which is used widely to power machinery, vehicles, and airplanes.
To manufacture lubrication oil: Lubrication oil is an essential factor for the maintenance and smooth running of machinery in all industries. Machine oil or lubrication oil is a derivative of crude oil.
To produce asphalt: Most of the modern roadways around the world are built using asphalt, which is produced using crude oil. It makes laying roads cheaper and efficient.
Textile production: Most synthetic fibers like polyester are manufactured with the help of crude oil
Manufacturing consumer products: Products such as soaps, detergents, and household cleaning products are manufactured using crude oil.
Factors influencing the price of Crude Oil
- Demand and supply forces: Like every commodity, the effects of demand and supply play a significant role in influencing the prices of crude oil around the world. An increase in supply causes the prices to lower, while a decrease in the production is likely to hike the rates of crude oil.
- OPEC output and supply: OPEC countries control a significant chunk of the world’s oil reserves. The decisions taken by this organization are watched closely by governments and corporates alike. Though OPEC may not be able to alter the oil prices to suit themselves permanently, their decisions often cause significant developments by influencing price expectations in the crude oil market.
- Geopolitical scenario: If an oil-producing country faces a geopolitical crisis or a war-like situation, it is likely to reduce the production of oil in its territory. Thus bringing down the global supply of oil and influence the prices in the long run. For example, the recent unrest in Venezuela caused the supply of crude oil to go down significantly. Such developments have a long term effect on crude oil prices.
- Economic development: Asian and African countries, which are firmly on the path of development, have continually increased their demand for oil to support industrial production and boost the economic growth of their region. Steadily rising demand for oil from these parts of the world brings about an increase in prices.
- Rise of Non-OPEC suppliers: Even though OPEC countries hold most of the world’s oil reserves, the past decades have seen new-age oil producers such as the United States of America and Canada gain mileage in the crude oil industry. They are oil-producing nations who are not under the influence of OPEC and may influence prices of crude oil by supplementing the supply wherever OPEC cuts down.
- Reports: Reports on production, pricing targets, capacity, and investments by renowned research agencies can also be a crucial factor in deciding the crude oil prices. Apart from such reports from OPEC and International Energy Agency, the National Bureau of Statistics of China is also held in high regard in this market.
Reasons to Invest in Crude Oil
- Diversification: Oil commodities are not influenced by price changes and fluctuations in traditional portfolio investments. So, if an investment portfolio predominantly comprises fixed-income assets or equity investments, it could be diversified with a stake in oil commodities. It will help reduce risk and countering price movements.
- Safety: Market turbulence may affect equity investments adversely. However, investments in commodities tend to retain their value even in times of global economic turmoil. Oil commodities are an essential component in this basket of safe investments.
- Inflation: A lot of investments are influenced by currency value and inflation in the long run. Oil commodities are backed by strong global demand, which is continuously increasing. Therefore, changes in currency value and changes in inflation are less likely to affect investments in oil commodities.
- Volatile pricing: Oil prices are always moving upwards or downwards. Fluctuations in oil prices are known to go up to ten percent in a single trading session. For those looking to make a quick profit, investment in oil futures and derivatives is an attractive option.
Risks of investing in Crude Oil
- Price volatility: The constant fluctuations in oil prices caused by a shortage of supply has shown that investments in oil commodities are not for the risk-averse. The risk of loss due to factors beyond the trader’s control is high.
- Dividend reductions: Often, oil companies pay significant dividends to their investors. Though this promises a reasonably regular income to investors, the profits may not always be as high as promised. Crude oil price fluctuations and loss of revenue may result in oil companies reducing the dividends being paid to investors at any time.
- Risk of the oil spill: Extraction of crude oil is a complicated and risky process. A single incident of the oil spill or an accident at an oil rig is bound to make the company’s share prices plummet.
