The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), assume that the spike in oil prices would be slow over the next few years than it had estimated. According to the OPEC, the prices of crude oil will rise $5 a year to $60 per barrel by the year 2020. Brent crude reports that, the international price of oil fell 11 cents to $46.04 a barrel on Tuesday.
A permanent intergovernmental organization, OPEC, quoted many aspects that could bound energy demand from slower progress in China to upper domestic debt. It also said, the Oil trade was shocked by the capacity of producers in North America to keep pumping even as oil rates fell, retaining the crude deliveries high. According to analyst Jessica Brewer, energy investment is expected to be 44% lesser during 2015 to 2020, keeping in mind that crude prices fall almost every two years. It would mean a discount of 3% in the year 2016 in oil & natural gas production, equal to 5mn barrels of oil, and additional 4%, or 6mn barrels, in the year 2017.
OPEC General Secretary, Mohammed Barkindo, cautioned in an overview to the statement, “The drop in investment through the previous two years, the oil industry wants to ask whether small oil prices have set the upcoming supply-demand outlook at danger. He also stated that “Although the latest oil market situation has been one of glut, it is vital that the oil industry guarantees that a shortage of investments in these days doesn’t lead to a lack of supply in the future". The world’s major energy producer Russia, which pumped at a post-Soviet top score is on the board with 11.2mn bpd in the last month of October. Any production agreement would require a result to the “sticking topic” related to the release claimed by other OPEC members such as Iraq and Iran.
