Experts On Stability Of Oil Bull Market

The other day, oil prices exceeded the $50/b level for the first time in 6 months. Despite the rally from under $30/b all the way up to $50/b, some experts are still questioning the potential of the current bull market of crude oil. While some representatives of the international expert community see the current market bias as a stable long-term tendency, others do not share their optimism, saying that this is a temporary recovery backed by some seasonal factor and some secondary factors dominating the market at this point.

Low Oil Prices Throw OPEC’s Poorest Nations Into Debt Abyss

Because of ultra-low oil prices, such OPEC nations as Angola, Nigeria, Iraq, and Venezuela found themselves neck-deep in debt. The thing is that these oil nations accumulated pretty considerable debt during the bullish cycle in the oil market when oil prices used to be much higher than they are these days. While these the debt was borrowed to improve the economic well being and oil prices allowed these nations to service it much easier, the oil market crash lead to a situation when oil exports started brining less considerable income, thereby making servicing the debt a real challenge. These days, in order to service their debts, the poorer OPEC nations has to provide their lenders with 3 times as much crude oil as they used to do.

Goldman Sachs Doesn’t Deny Lower Oil Prices

American oil companies are not going to make some fundamental changes in case oil prices start going up and down within the $30-35/b range. The thing is, such prices are said to be still comfortable for them.

 


According to Goldman Sachs Group Inc., oil prices around $35/b are neither too high not too low. They say this is may well be the price to start buying the stocks of American oil producers and miners. Even if there is a period of prices between $30/b and $35/b, they are still not going to make any serious changes to their policies, especially as the companies expect WTI prices to go all the way up to $55-60/b in a more distant future. Goldman Sachs experts say this may happen in 2017.
