China complains to USA over end to Iran oil sanction waivers

Japan expects limited impact from U.S. move to scrap Iran oil sanctions waivers

Oil prices jump as Trump calls halt to waivers on Iran sanctions

President Donald Trump's decision to tighten US sanctions on Iranian oil will not result in higher oil prices.

Iran was India's third-largest oil supplier after Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

Japan expects a limited impact from a USA decision to force buyers of Iranian crude oil to stop purchases from next month, trade and industry minister Hiroshige Seko said on Tuesday.

Yesterday Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Iranian oil exports had generated around $50 billion annually and the country has already suffered $10 billion in losses from a partial sanction roll out last November.

Seko also told reporters at a regular press conference that the Japanese government did not see any need to tap national oil reserves following the USA decision by the U.S.

Trump threatens Supreme Court fight against impeachment
Some conservatives outside of Congress have urged congressional action in the wake of Mueller's report. The House Democrat's subpoena comes days after Mueller's final redacted report was released.


Among those affected are China, India, Japan, South Korea and Turkey.

"Today I am announcing that we will no longer grant any exemptions", Mike Pompeo, the USA secretary of state, said Tuesday.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude rose 72 cents to $66.27 per barrel while worldwide Brent oil rose 35 cents to $74.39 per barrel.

Adding spare capacity from OPEC means "there will not be short supply in the market", said Dai.

That will tighten oil supplies as seasonal demand picks up in the Northern Hemisphere, forcing importers to seek alternative supplies, a search made more challenging with production falling off in Venezuela and Libya because of domestic unrest and conflict.

The last time oil prices surpassed $100 a barrel was during the Arab Spring uprisings, which curtailed supply and pushed Brent prices past that mark from 2011 through 2014.

"Pushing buying oil from other countries besides Iran goes too far".

The Trump administration on Monday said it will not renew exemptions granted past year to buyers of Iranian oil, a more stringent than expected decision that caught several key importers who have been pleading with Washington to continue buying Iranian oil sanctions-free.

But oil analysts said the supply is likely to remain tight through the rest of the year. "The world is awash with oil", Kudlow said during an appearance at the National Press Club.

Ahead of the announcement, Beijing expressed strong opposition to the U.S.' unilateral sanctions against Tehran. "Trump is bizarrely set on this destructive policy even as it threatens USA security and risks American voters' digging deeper into their pockets to pay for rising gas prices".
