Petronas sees oil prices at $50-$60 over next three years

A hundred dollar a barrel prices are a thing of the past. This is what Malaysian oil company has said in its freshly put out activity outlook 2018-2020.

Petronas Vice President of Group Procurement, Samsudin Miskon said: “As we approach 2018, the uncertainty in the oil and gas industry remains a topic of constant discussion. It is imperative for industry players to understand key trends as a barometer for the industry.

Petronas has listed three major factors to monitor that are important for the prices to continue improving: OPEC-Non-OPEC production cut compliance, U.S. shale agility, and Sustained healthy level of oil demand growth.

For the past few years, the industry has experienced a slow-down in activities following the drop in oil prices.  Through efforts by OPEC and non-OPEC members to cut production of 1.8 million barrels per day, prices are projected to remain within the range of USD50s – USD60s per barrel.

In our view, the oil price outlook will hover around $50s to $60s per barrel. The majority of analysts agree that >USD100 per barrel is now a thing of the past.”
