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.
