Oil Industry: An Analysis

Oil prices are receding as investors brace for a recession that is likely to dampen energy demand all over the world. China’s zero-COVID policy and resurgence in virus cases are also weighing on oil prices.  On July 11, West Texas Intermediate dropped near $101 a barrel.

Nonetheless, the oil industry stands to gain on the back of some long-term growth catalysts. According to an EIA report published in June, oil demand could reach 101.6 mb/d in 2023. China will account for the biggest chunk of this growth in the oil market as the country continues to show relentless economic growth.

Recently, JPMorgan Chase warned that oil could reach $380 a barrel if Russia decides to retaliate against the West by suspending oil and gas supplies to Europe. However, Citigroup is of the view that oil price would collapse to $65 per barrel by the end of 2022 and to $45 by the end of 2023 in case of a recession.
