MOSCOW, January 16. / TASS /. The price of oil could fall to $25 per barrel, head of Lukoil Vagit Alekperov told journalists on Friday.
Alekpetov said that based on the latest statements from Saudi Arabia, he cannot rule out a price drop to $25. He added that he expects significant price fluctuation this year, considering that by January 15 the price varied within a 10% range.
"That has never happened before" Alekperov said.
