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.
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) reported Thursday the global oil demand forecast has been raised for 2015 to 92.3 million barrels per day from 92.26 million bpd. The US oil output forecast for 2015 has been raised to 13.81 million bpd from 13.72 million bpd. The organization also said it expects decline in demand for oil from organization’s member-states in 2015 by 100,000 barrels per day to 28.8 million barrels. After the announcement the price of Brent futures for February delivery grew by 0.7% on the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) in London on Thursday to $49.07 per barrel.
