Brazil oil workers begin strike


news.bbc.co.uk

Workers at Brazil's state-run oil company Petrobras have begun a five-day strike, raising fears of further pressure on world oil prices.

The firm is playing down the potential impact of the dispute, which is over offshore working conditions.

The management say there is a contingency plan to maintain output.

But a union spokesman said while management would do everything they could to maintain production workers would do their best to disrupt it.

The strike by employees at the 42 oilfields in the Campos basin off the coast of the state of Sao Paulo is going ahead after talks last week ended without agreement.

We all know that the speculation in the oil markets is driving the value up higher and higher.

Any reasoning for an investor to think that Oil might get hit, and they naturally assume the value per barrel is going to be worth more.

Well, here's the reasoning behind the next price spike. As if we needed that.
