    Good Afternoon.

    Dear Mercury,
    Just read your article on Oil and Gas, fact is there no transparency in this field.
    To gain one buyer they just keep fighting among each other . Fact there are too ignorant and bring destruction within themselves and their alliance without even keeping in mind buyer’s are having different choices now.

    Presently you cannot hold any buyer for long term agreement, breaching for contact are done in this field frequently due to price variation it is same as preparing the onset target while having offset mind.

    Focus on unity and cooperate.

    Hi mercury,

    Accurate information of oil market.
    Fluctuation of prices , OPEC increasing and decreasing the supply quota really at times favor one and another.
    Tragic to see price fall dramatically but certain supply chain don’t release the oil even on point discount.

    Oil strategy varying from broker to importers.
    A key player of oil round the sales of all countries.
    Keeping an eye πŸ€”

    Thank you for sharing
