CHART OF THE DAY: The sudden loss of 5.7m b/d of #oil production is the single largest outage the market has ever sufferes (larger in volume than the loss of Iraqi and Kuwaiti output in the 1990 Gulf War, and the loss of Iranian oil in the 1979 Islamic Revolution) #OOTT
Of course, those other outages lasted for several month, so their cumulative pact was huge. Key here is how quickly Aramco can restart production (either through repairs, bypasses or increasing output elsewhere, notably its offshore fields in the Persian Gulf) #OOTT
Also, important to note that the overall oil market was a lot smaller in 1990 and 1979, so a smaller outage in volume terms (barrels per day) could have a much larger impact when considered as % of global supplies | #OOTT
