Montreal, Quebec, April 7, 2011– Hilbroy Advisory Inc. (DeutcheBörse: 2H0) Hilbroy Advisory Reports: Oil prices jumped above $111 a barrel Friday in Asia as fighting in Libya damaged oil fields in the OPEC nation and a weaker dollar made commodities cheaper for investors with other currencies.
Benchmark crude for May delivery was up $1.18 at $111.48 a barrel at late afternoon Singapore time, the highest since September 2008, in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract rose $1.47 to settle at $110.30 on Thursday.
In London, Brent crude for May delivery was up $1.59 to $123.85 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange.
Crude output in Libya slowed to a trickle this week as forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi attacked the country’s largest oil field in the rebel-controlled east, rebels said. Most of Libya’s 1.6 million barrels a day of crude production had already been shut down by nearly two months of fighting.
Rebels were able to sell a shipment of 1 million barrels Wednesday but damage to their oil fields has all but halted production. Output in the government-held west has collapsed as sanctions target Libyan state oil activities.
A weaker dollar also boosted oil prices since that makes dollar-based commodities such as crude cheaper for trader with other currencies. The euro rose to $1.4405 on Friday from $1.4306 late Thursday.
In other Nymex trading in May contracts, heating oil rose 3.4 cents to $3.24 a gallon and gasoline gained 2.7 cents to $3.21 a gallon. Natural gas futures were down 1.3 cents at $4.04 per 1,000 cubic feet.
