Oil collapse wipes out profits at Total

Total said Tuesday its quarterly profit fell by 99 percent because of dropping oil prices and announced it would slash investments in response to the ongoing turmoil in crude markets. The French oil major reported a net profit of $34 million for the first quarter, against $3.1 billion a year earlier. Oil prices suffered a sharp drop in the first quarter due to overproduction and a price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia, falling to $50.1 from $63.1 a year earlier. The sharp fall in oil and gas prices depressed Total’s cash flow from operations by nearly two thirds. Since the end of March, oil has been hit further by a collapse in demand due to the economic impact of the coronavirus, even going negative at one point last month, when sellers had to pay buyers to take oil off th...

US oil price closes at -$37.63/barrel

Oil prices ended New York trading in the negative on Monday for the first time ever, as a supply glut forced traders to pay others to take the commodity.
