Crude oil to reach $80/barrel in 2020: OPEC
NYMEX and Brent futures declined more than 50%, according to data from ChemOrbis Price Wizard, due to OPEC’s strategy of maintaining production to defend its global market share against unconventional oil production from non-OPEC countries such as the US.
According to the report, crude oil output from nations outside OPEC will average 58.2 million barrels per day in 2017, 1 million bpd lower than the group’s initial forecast. Meanwhile, consumption is projected to grow by 1 million barrels per year to reach 97.4 million barrels per day by 2020.
