New Lockdowns In Asia Spark Oil Demand Concerns

But things went downhill from there on fears that India, the world’s third-biggest oil importer, may impose restrictions as coronavirus infections and deaths surged to record highs.

These new concerns over demand essentially became the theme of the week as a series of bearish developments outweighed few potentially bullish developments.

India, the world’s third-largest oil user, on Thursday reported the world’s highest daily increase to date with 314,835 new coronavirus cases.

Indian Oil Corp Ltd’s refineries are operating at about 95% of their capacity, down from 100% at the same time last month, two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Japan, the world’s No. 4 oil importer, is expected to announce a third wave of lockdowns affecting Tokyo and three western prefectures, media reported.

The Japanese government plans to declare a state of emergency for the third time for Tokyo and three other prefectures following a resurgence of new COVID-19 infections, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga said on Thursday.
