Standard Chartered Cuts Oil Price Forecast by $29|
Standard Chartered revealed Monday that it has lowered its 2020 average Brent oil price forecast by $29 per barrel to $35 per barrel.
The company, which believes the collapse of the OPEC+ agreement will lead to a “severe and extended price war”, lowered its second quarter Brent forecast by $38 per barrel to $23 per barrel and its 2021 forecast by $23 per barrel to $44 per barrel.
Standard Chartered said it expects Saudi Arabia to increase its crude oil output to close to 11 million barrels per day (MMbpd) in April and to 11.8 MMbpd by the end of 2Q.
“With supply ramping up at the same time as coronavirus-related demand losses reach their maximum, the short-term floor to oil prices is extremely weak,” Standard Chartered said in a research note sent to Rigzone on Monday.
