Brent. December 31, 2020 What awaits the oil market in 2021?

In April 2020, Brent crude hit multi-year lows, falling to $16 a barrel amid the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and the price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia. At the same time, the price for American WTI crude oil fell into the area of ​​negative values.

Experts note that the consumption of crude oil and liquid fuels in the world for the year decreased by 9% (from 101 million barrels per day in 2019 to 92.4 million barrels). However, an agreement to cut oil production under OPEC + allowed oil to recoup most of the losses by the end of 2020. Today Brent quotes are holding at $51.50 per barrel.

However, it is possible that at the beginning of 2021, quotations may again fall to $30 per barrel amid the announcement of new lockdowns in many countries due to the further spread of coronavirus in the world. But, nevertheless, the market is now dominated by optimism. Analysts still expect the global economy to recover next year, which can support the demand for commodities. The oil price range is expected to be in the range of $40-65 per barrel over the next year.

On the last day of the outgoing year, Brent quotes settled at $51.40 per barrel.
