Daily (20.09.2019): NBP spot fell by nearly 3% on Thursday, as low wind and reduced French power output boosted gas-for-power demand

Crude oil prices turned bullish on Thursday, as traders started to doubt whether Saudi Arabia will be able to fulfill its pledge to restore lost production by September 30 and its capacity by November 30 after last weekend’s attack.
