The decision by major producers to maintain production cuts has had an impact on
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) and non-OPEC oil producers held their 34th ministerial meeting via video on Thursday and decided to maintain the production cut target set at the 33rd ministerial meeting.
The 33rd Ministerial Meeting on October 5 decided to cut monthly production by 2 million barrels per day from August levels, equivalent to 2% of global daily oil demand, starting in November.
Opec issued a statement after its ministerial meeting on Thursday, stressing that the decision to cut production at the October meeting was solely based on market considerations.
A decision by major oil producers to cut production sharply failed to support international crude prices amid concerns about the outlook for the world economy. The main New York oil contract has fallen from more than $120 a barrel in June to around $80 now. Brent crude futures in London showed a similar trend.
The European Union, the Group of Seven and Australia announced a $60 per barrel price cap on Russian seaborne crude oil exports on Tuesday, adding to the market's uncertainty. Moscow says proposals such as restrictions on Russian oil imports and price caps on Russian oil would only lead to a spike in oil prices, like gas prices.
The 35th Ministerial meeting between Opec and non-OPEC producers will be held on June 4, 2023. But major producers said they would call an impromptu ministerial meeting if necessary to respond to changes in the crude market.
In April 2020, Opec and non-OPEC producers reached an agreement to cut production due to the impact of COVID-19 and other factors on oil demand. Starting in May 2021, major oil-producing countries began to gradually increase oil production as demand for oil recovered. In September, major producers announced their first monthly output cut in more than a year, cutting October output by 100,000 b/d.

What is ceramic sand?
The casting sand introduction
Ceramic sand is mainly processed by zirconia and is widely used in the "polishing strengthening" of aviation, ship, automobile, machinery and other metal parts; the "sandblasting finishing" of metal, plastic and other workpieces; the "cleaning and polishing" of the inner and outer walls of steel pipes and copper pipes; the "vibration polishing" of precious metal jewelry and small metal parts; and the "grinding and dispersion" of liquid and solid materials in chemical, pharmaceutical, food and other industries.
The unique casting sand
physical and chemical properties of ceramic sand make it play an important role in aviation, aerospace, electronics, machinery and the rapidly developing IT industry, especially its internal molecular chain structure, crystal form and lattice change law, so that it has high temperature resistance, low coefficient of thermal expansion, high insulation, corrosion resistance, piezoelectric effect, resonance effect and unique optical properties.
Price trend of ceramic sand
-casting sand price
Under the influence of casting sand the Fed's interest rate hike, commodity pressure has increased, while the downward volatility of international crude oil at the cost side and weak support on the demand side are also key factors dragging down the fall in chemicals. In August, the demand stimulus policy has been further strengthened, and the demand for some raw materials is expected to improve. The high supporting factors of global energy prices remain under the impact of the superimposed supply chain, and the decline in the chemical market is expected to narrow gradually in August.
First, under the global
tightening policy, the downward pressure on chemicals has increased. Affected by the increase in interest rates by the Federal Reserve, people in the industry are generally more worried about the economic recession. under the guidance of market pessimism, the external quotations of most chemical products have been continuously lowered.
Second, raw materials such as international oil prices have fallen sharply, weakening the cost support for chemicals and dragging down the market atmosphere at the same time. Take crude oil as an example, casting sand
the oil price showed an resistant decline during the month, although the supply side was still limited to support the fundamentals of oil prices, but the European Central Bank followed the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates aggressively, and the macro pressure did not abate. during the month, the fall in oil prices weakened support for the cost side of chemicals.
Third, supply is strong and demand is weak, and the impact on the supply and demand side is gradually strengthened. The supply side is generally loose. On the one hand, the gradual release of new production capacity has increased the supply of some chemicals.
On the other hand, since the second quarter, non-market factors have suddenly occurred and economic growth at home and abroad has slowed down. Sales of most chemicals are not smooth and inventory continues to accumulate. The demand side recovers slowly, and the consumption of chemicals increases slowly. Under the care of the casting sand
demand stimulus policy, the terminal industry has gradually recovered, superimposed various stable growth policies have been gradually strengthened, and the overall performance of the demand side is cautious and optimistic, but the growth of real demand still needs a certain period of time. Overall, the demand side still has a negative impact on the price of chemical products.
