Analysing the oil market: Insights from Dr. Nakhle and Ole Hansen

Dr Carole Nakhle, CEO of Crystol Energy, is quoted in this article written by Dean Mikkelsen from Oil & Gas Middle East commenting on the outlook for oil markets in 2024.

According to Dr. Nakhle, the lack of substantial supply disruptions is a crucial factor in maintaining stable oil prices. In addition, the extra spare capacity, due to OPEC+ cuts, has helped lessened the impact of the recent geopolitical developments that are notoriously known to affect markets.

On balance, these fundamentals entail that crude oil is likely to remain rangebound around $80 per barrel ($/bbl) for Brent for the first quarter of 2024.
