  • This further adds to growing Russia-Ukraine fallout fears, kickstarted by damage sustained to a nuclear power plant in fighting overnight.
  • WTI is +7.0% at $115.2, approaching yesterday’s high of $116.57 which if cleared could open the psychological $120. In signs of how tight supply is, the US oil rig count surprisingly fell in latest weekly data despite such high prices.
