The passage to 2018 showed in the London and New York stock exchanges that black gold is still the master spring of world capitalism. The Brent oil was quoted in the London market at US $67,59, while in the WTI (NY-USA), arrived at US $62.14. The 21st century is still debating the current of its main industry, that of oil.
In previous years there were cycles in the price fluctuation of the oil barrel, and the market like that of Brazil, mirrored in the reheating from the sale of the assets of Petrobras, creating a blurred view that oil is of paramount importance to the producing nations and purchasers , where the price is shown in the curves of supply and demand, with other commodities, making the economy more complex in world geopolitical reality, logistical security and the cost of production, consolidating this capital for investments in international agreements that Guarantee greater profitability for the sector.

The world tends to US action, maintenance of low oil exploration and production by OPEC aiming to increase the press of the oil barrel, and China crosses the wall continuing with the purchase front of reserves, Wells and formalizing commissioned world agreements, ie , without any mistakes.
