全球最大石油贸易商维多一季度利润暴跌70%

据今日油价网站报道,世界上最大的独立石油交易商维多宣布,2020年一季度净利润暴跌70%。英国《金融时报》周二援引数据报道说,疫情影响导致石油需求和价格不断下跌,也对石油贸易产生了重大影响。

维多2020年一季度的净利润为1.8亿美元,而在2019年第一季度,维多每日交易超过700万桶原油和产品,当期净利润高达6亿美元。

据英国《金融时报》接触的业内人士透露,今年伊始维多持有大量石油库存,并乐观估计全球石油需求将强于去年。

据报道,在油价暴跌后,维多在一季度结束时股价表现更好,得益于订购超大型油轮(VLCCs)以在海上储存石油。英国《金融时报》指出,石油贸易公司通常会从石油市场的供过于求中获利。维多称,5月石油市场最糟糕的时期已经结束,该公司执行长Russell Hardy对路透表示,“现在更容易看到未来,因此市场更有能力对供需平衡状况做出有根据的猜测。”

World’s Largest Oil Trader Sees Profits Plunge 70%

The world’s largest independent oil trader, privately-held Vitol, saw its net profit collapse by 70 percent in the first quarter of 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic and the plunging oil demand and prices took its toll Vitol’s net profit for Q1 was just US$180 million, according to the figures seen by FT. To compare, in the first quarter of 2019, Vitol – which trades more than 7 million barrels of crude oil and products every day – booked a net income of as much as US$600 million.

According to industry insiders briefed by FT, Vitol started this year holding a large oil inventory, expecting that global oil demand would be stronger than last year’s.

By the end of March, Vitol was already predicting a plunge in oil demand by 20 million barrels per day for the weeks ahead.

After the oil price crash, Vitol has reportedly done better after Q1 ended, benefiting from booking very large crude carriers (VLCCs) in order to store oil at sea. Oil trading houses usually profit from a glut in oil markets, FT notes.

Vitol called the end of the worst period for the oil market in early May, with chief executive Russell Hardy telling Reuters that “It’s a bit easier to see the future, so the market is more able to make an educated guess about what that supply/demand balance looks like. ”
