Parliamentary “Finance” expects to achieve a surplus in Iraq’s budget 2021

The Finance Committee of the Iraqi Parliament suggested, today, Friday, a surplus in the federal general budget for the current fiscal year 2021, due to the increase in oil export prices above the planned rate in the budget law

Committee Rapporteur Ahmed Al-Saffar said in a statement to the Iraqi News Agency (INA): “Calculating the financial deficit is annually and not monthly, but by calculating oil revenues during the first six months of this year, it is noted that the difference between the selling price of oil and the rate of the planned price in the budget law covers the deficit.” In full, if the same rate is calculated for the next six months

Al-Saffar added that “expectations indicate a rise in oil prices, and they are now on a continuous rise, and perhaps the deficit will be covered and a surplus will also be achieved as a result of the rise in oil prices and the change in the dinar exchange rate and its reduction against the dollar, which provided the government with sums that can cover the deficit and more

On the 14th of last July, the Federal Supreme Court postponed the date for appealing the Federal Budget Law for the fiscal year 2021, as a judicial source stated to the Iraqi News Agency (INA), that the Federal Supreme Court postponed the date for appealing the Federal Budget Law for the fiscal year 2021, to the twenty-fourth of this month   link

An American bank suggests that OPEC + will not respond to Washington: a barrel of oil reaches $ 80 at the end of the year

The US investment bank Goldman Sachs said the US’s recent call for OPEC + to boost oil production is unlikely to lead to increased production in the short term given the threat of demand from the delta strain of the Corona virus.

On Wednesday, the administration of US President Joe Biden urged the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies, known as OPEC +, to increase production to counter rising gasoline prices, which they see as a threat to global economic recovery.

“We see neither the recent White House statement threatening the current market deficit nor the pace of rebalancing in the second half of 21,” Goldman Sachs said in a note dated Thursday, maintaining its year-end forecast for Brent crude at $80 a barrel.

Brent crude futures fell 0.4 percent to $71 a barrel on Friday, while US West Texas Intermediate crude traded around $68.76.

However, Goldman noted that an additional increase in OPEC+ production by the end of the year is required to counteract recent supply disappointments globally, and expects that OPEC+ spare capacity will be fully normalized by the spring of 2022.

Last month, OPEC+ agreed to increase oil supply from August to cool prices that had climbed to two-and-a-half-year highs. Read more

The US bank recently lowered its forecast for oil demand in China, citing growing concerns about the spread of the delta variable.

“In the short term, Delta’s threat to oil demand has already weakened the global balance, with the deficit narrowing from 2.3 to 1.0 million barrels per day,” the bank said.  link
