Why Oil Corporation Is Increasing Petroleum Price In Nepal?

Petroleum products are going up and up in Nepal. The main reason for increasing fuel in Nepal is due to the increment of curd oil in the international market especially due to lockdowns in most of the countries. For the first time ever, the price of crude oil became negative on April 20, 2020, dropping to – $37.6 per barrel. This means that because they lack storage space, producers pay buyers to take their oil. As Nepal is fully importing oil from India transportation cost also plays a major role in increasing petroleum products. The pandemic that paralyzed the world economy was to blame, and American energy companies had no more space to store the excess oil that was floating around. Nobody wants a crude contract that is about to mature if there is nowhere to store the oil. However, since January, crude oil prices have been on the rise. Nepal was also affected by it.

Does Russia-Ukraine War Responsible For Rising Fuel Prices?

Yes, the Russia-Ukraine war is also responsible for rising fuel prices in the international market. As Russia is the biggest exporter of oil and oil products. As per International Energy Agency (IEA) Russia supplies 2.2 million oil barrels per day. Due to the Russia-Ukraine war supply chain of curd oil has been interrupted. The price of petroleum products again started rising in the international market as well as in Nepal.
