Russian Energy Ministry considers $50 per barrel fair oil price

Oct 07, 2019

Moscow (Russia) Oct 07: Russia's Energy Ministry considers $50 per barrel a fair oil price, Minister Alexander Novak said in an interview with the Reuters news agency.
"Everyone has forgotten about oil at $100 per barrel. We live based on mid-term oil price assumptions of $50 ... Our budget is based in 2019 on oil prices of $43-$45 per barrel," he said.
According to the minister, crude prices will remain close to the current levels over the long-term, as the decline in production in Iran and Venezuela is offset by the output growth in the US and an array of other countries.
