August 11, 2015 • Tell FriendsPrinter Friendly

The summary of market info as of 11 August 2015 is as follows:

  • OPEC pumped the most crude last month in more than three years as Iran restored output to the highest level from 32,300 barrels a day in July to 2.86 million a day, the highest since international sanctions were strengthened in 2012.
  • Price falls amid broader commodity decline as China’s central bank devalues currency, bolstered concern that the world’s second-biggest economy will slow.
  • If there is no evidence of cutting production in the U.S. or OPEC, even though there is an evidence of increased demand, it won’t be enough to boost the price significantly.
  • EIA forecasts WTI at $49.62 for 2015 and $54.2/bbl for 2016, while Brent at $54.40/bbl and $59.42/bbl for 2016.

Based on the graph, we estimate SLC will down to $45.53/bbl in August 2015 and will average $ 52.05/bbl for full year 2015.
