The price of oil in September will remain low, perhaps even a slight decrease from current levels below $ 40 per barrel. In October, the downward trend is likely to be interrupted and a gradual growth will begin, which will accelerate in November and December, according to TASS experts.
“There will be no serious drop in oil prices in September – it is unlikely to fall closer to $ 35 per barrel. Now comes the review of almost all agencies with draft (oil prices) in September and renewal in October. In November, there will be a further growth trend, “said analyst Andriy Polishchuk. He also added that in the fourth quarter of 2020 the price of oil could rise to $ 47 per barrel.
Mariia Belova, Research Director at VYGON Consulting, sees no reason for further reduction of oil prices in the current conditions. On her opinion, under current conditions the equilibrium price of oil is in the range of $ 40-42 per barrel. Head of analytical department of the AMarkets, Artem Deev, added that by the end of 2020 the average oil price will range from $ 40 to $ 50 a barrel, but it will not exceed this level.
Dmytro Marynchenko, director of the natural resources and raw materials of Fitch agency, is less optimistic: he estimates that the price of oil will be higher than the current one, but on average in 2020 will be about $ 41 per barrel, and in the next will grow to $ 45, but subject to the general trend towards the opening of the world economy will continue.
Why oil fell below $ 40
The recent rise in oil prices was not supported by market conditions, the balance of supply and demand, therefore, the price of the oil fell below $ 40 per barrel.
“Its rise to $ 45 a barrel was not supported by fundamental factors, but rather a consequence of traders. Now, due to the end of the car season and agricultural trials, there is some increase in oil reserves, the beginning of autumn also increases the risk of a second wave of the pandemic, ” – says Belova from VYGON Consulting.
Another factor was the fear of the market before the second wave of restrictive measures through coronavirus. “Some countries and regions are once again stepping up quarantine measures, to curb the spread of the infection, although they remain much milder than in April-June, “said Marynchenko from Fitch.
The price was also negatively affected by Saudi Arabia’s decision to offer discounts on its oil. For example, for Asian buyers, it fell a record – by $ 1.4 per barrel.
Marinchenko noted that OPEC +, even in worst-case scenario, developments in the market will continue to manage the balance of supply and demand and, if necessary, make adjustments to the parameters of the current agreement to reduce production. “At the moment the sharp fall in prices is unlikely but possible that at some time they will remain in the corridor of $ 30-40,” – he said.
“Clearly, the current movement has been affected by data of increasing oil reserves in the US and a general concern, that the incidence of coronavirus has begun to rise again in the world. But the price has long remained at $ 45 per barrel, so it is difficult for it to go up immediately, it needs some start-up, ” – summed up the analyst of “Finama” Alexey Kalachev.
