MOSCOW, May 2. /TASS/. World oil prices will fluctuate within the range of $40-60 per barrel in the next five years, Russian ex-finance minister Alexei Kudrin told TASS on Tuesday.
"My forecast remains: the oil price will fluctuate within the range of $40-60 per barrel in the next 4-5 years. This will be a period of movement towards a new equilibrium," Kudrin said.
Even if the world oil price drops below $40 per barrel, Russia will all the same be able to easily administer the level of expenditures calculated at the oil price of $45 per barrel, the ex-finance minister said.
"We have reserves and the National Welfare Fund. We can borrow on the market within reasonable limits after all. But I believe that the oil price will be at the level of $45 and higher," Kudrin said.
