Britain's decision to make unilateral changes to Northern Irish Brexit arrangements is "not the appropriate behaviour of a respectable country" and will erode trust with the European Union, senior Irish ministers said on Thursday. The EU promised legal action on Wednesday after the British government unilaterally extended a grace period for checks on food imports to Northern Ireland, a move Brussels said violated terms of Britain's divorce deal.

(Bloomberg) -- OPEC and its allies kept oil-watchers guessing about their next move, after a day of preliminary talks offered few clues as to whether the market will get the April supply increase it’s been expecting.Saudi Arabia and Russia, leaders of group, held bilateral talks on Wednesday, seeking common ground as Riyadh urges caution and Moscow presses to raise output, a delegate said. While OPEC+ is still widely expected to revive some of the 7 million barrels a day they’ve idled, a preliminary meeting of ministers didn’t get into specifics. Delegates said several options were still on the table.While OPEC+ is still widely expected to revive some of the 7 million barrels a day they’ve idled, a panel of ministers didn’t and delegates said several options were still on the table. The trajectory of oil prices in the coming months now rests on the outcome of Thursday’s full meeting of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies. Crude could move higher if the group doesn’t deliver all of the extra barrels the market needs to fuel the economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.“OPEC+ may raise by only 0.9 million barrels a day in April,” said Amrita Sen, chief oil analyst and co-founder at Energy Aspects Ltd. Anything less than the 1.4 million barrel-a-day hike that had previously been expected “should be viewed as bullish by the market.”Plot TwistsSaudi Arabia, the leader of the producers’ group alongside Russia, has developed a liking for bullish surprises. Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman triggered a sharp surge in prices at the cartel’s January meeting by springing a unilateral production cut of 1 million barrels a day on an unsuspecting market. He has often warned of his willingness to inflict pain on anyone short-selling oil.“Given his repeated insistence that it is a futile exercise to predict Saudi action, we think His Royal Highness may look to cement his reputation as the prince of plot twists,” said Helima Croft, chief commodities strategist at RBC Capital Markets.Despite the notes of caution, veteran OPEC-watchers still expected some extra barrels from the group. There’s little chance that the group will hold output at current levels in April, given the pressure from members including the United Arab Emirates and Russia to pump more, said Sen. In Croft’s view, the most likely outcome is an increase of 500,000 to 1 million barrels a day.Two-Part DealThere are two distinct elements to the production increase that OPEC+ will debate on Thursday.First, will the cartel proceed with a 500,000 barrel-a-day collective output hike in April? Second, how will Saudi Arabia phase out the extra supply reduction of 1 million barrels a day it’s been making voluntarily in February and March?Russia has been the most consistent advocate for the first element, and others in the group also support the move, people familiar with the matter said earlier this week. Whether the full 500,000 barrels a day, or a smaller amount, will be returned was still uncertain on Thursday morning, delegates said. On the second element, Saudi Arabia originally intended for its voluntary supply reduction to only last for two months. But recently, the kingdom has been considering whether it would appropriate to return all of those barrels in a single month, or spread the move over a longer period, people familiar with the matter said earlier this week.The Saudis’ production plans for April remained unclear on Thursday morning, according to delegates from other OPEC+ nations. Ministers are scheduled to meet by video conference at 2 p.m. Vienna time. Many Wildcards“From a risk management perspective, the direction of travel appears to be to maintain a tighter policy than the market expects for a bit longer,” said Bob McNally, president of consultant Rapidan Energy Group and a former White House official.The group’s own analysts think the market is ready for extra supply. Even if OPEC+ were to boost production by 2.4 million barrels a day between February and June -- the maximum amount allowed under the current deal -- it will still be able to clear the remnants of the 2020 supply glut by August, according to a presentation from the secretariat’s technical experts on Tuesday.While OPEC+ ministers may not be giving clear signals, the recent trend in oil prices points to a market that needs more supply. Brent crude was trading near $64 a barrel on Thursday, an increase of almost 24% this year.“They’re going to respond to the pressure” to raise production with prices at this level, said Ed Morse, global head of commodities research at Citigroup Inc. Yet he also advised against taking the cartel’s actions for granted. “I have told our clients I would not invest in any way on this OPEC meeting -- I think there are too many wildcards.”(Updates with details of latest discussions after the 10th paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

New guidance will ‘significantly reduce’ length of time taken to develop adapted Covid-19 jabs, says UK regulator
(Bloomberg) -- In a year when the U.K. is hosting global climate talks and pressing others to adopt more ambitious goals, Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak offered little in the way of fresh cash or ideas in his budget.Sunak said Wednesday he wanted to lay the foundations for achieving Boris Johnson’s green goals, but environmental advocates were largely disappointed by the new policies and lack of spending. The most significant move was Sunak’s instruction to the Bank of England to align its monetary policy toolkit with the government’s target to eliminate greenhouse gas pollution by 2050.The central bank has been criticized over its pandemic rescue program and last year it acknowledged that its corporate bond buying program is in line with 3.5 degrees Celsius of global warming -- far exceeding the temperature goals laid out in the Paris Agreement aimed at avoiding the worst effects of climate change.Sunak also announced plans for new green retail bonds and a National Infrastructure Bank with 12 billion pounds ($16.8 billion) of capital. He mentioned a new taskforce that would seek to boost the market for voluntary carbon offsets.“While these measures do matter and will make a difference, this budget represents a missed opportunity to put the green economy and sustainability at the heart of the economic effort to recover from the Covid-19 crisis,” said Maria Connolly, a partner at U.K. law firm TLT that advises on clean energy. “Actions speak louder than words and unfortunately the rhetoric on the green industrial revolution continues to outweigh the policies.”Home HeatingThe budget lacked new spending on a home insulation program that is seen as crucial to meeting climate goals. Last month, the government confirmed it was cutting funding for the Green Homes Grant, which helps homeowners switch to more environmentally friendly heating systems.READ MORE: Hidden Gauge of U.K.’s Zero-Carbon Drive Sits in Your Cellar“Meeting the most ambitious climate change targets of any major economy will require more ambition than was in today’s budget,” said Emma Pinchbeck, chief executive of the trade body Energy U.K. “We need a concerted, cross-government approach,” she said, “particularly on how to make our buildings energy efficient and low carbon.”Sunak also canceled a planned increase of a tax on auto fuel for the 11th year in a row, in a bid to reduce costs for consumers. A decade of fixed gasoline duties has increased U.K. carbon dioxide emissions by as much as 5%, according to analysis by the website Carbon Brief.“It’s astonishing that a government pledging to confront the climate emergency has frozen fuel duty yet again,” said Mike Childs, head of policy at the campaign group Friends of the Earth.The budget didn’t address cutting the value-added tax on green products such as solar panels. Advocates including The Daily Express newspaper have called for the levy to be cut in order to deliver a “green Brexit” as the U.K. leaves the European Union.British Tabloids Get Behind Johnson’s Green Push: Green InsightClimate MandateThe most impact could come from changing the central bank’s mandate. The BoE is set to be the first in the western world to incorporate climate into its monetary policy remit, according to Positive Money, a group that campaigned for the shift. Sweden’s Riksbank and the Swiss National Bank have already changed their asset purchases to exclude unsustainable assets, though their mandates remain the same.The decision appears to answer a call from Parliament’s Environmental Audit Committee to align its corporate bond buying program with the Paris accord before the COP26 gathering in November. The BoE said it plans to adopt the changes by the fourth quarter.Sunak’s announcement completes the mandate change that was promised in the government’s 2019 Green Finance Strategy. The central bank’s Financial Policy Committee already considers climate and net-zero goals within its remit, and now the Monetary Policy Committee will too.“The government’s economic policy objective has changed. Last year, it was leveling up the regions, now it’s leveling up and net zero, so that’s significant overall,” said Nick Robins, professor of sustainable finance and the London School of Economics and Political Science.(Updates 14th paragraph with quote)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
