Crude oil strengthened after Goldman Sachs analysts Damien Courvalin and Jeffrey Currie said that a decline in production due to unexpected disruptions, along with sustained demand, have created a “sudden halt” to the output surplus, reports Serene Cheong for Bloomberg.

The shifting outlook that supply losses are leading to a rebalance was also mirrored by Morgan Stanley, Barclays Plc and Bank of America Corp.
