According to the inaugural edition of the report, on 12 February, Brent Crude Oil prices were down 16.7% from the beginning of the year, while an annual comparison showed that prices had fallen 45.6%.

“The renewed drop in global oil prices resulted from increasing concerns among investors that global economic growth continues to show signs of weakness, particularly due to a substantial deceleration in key emerging economies. China’s economy has hit the lowest growth rate in a generation, and this will further limit demand for oil,” said Ricardo Aceves, Senior Economist at Met the why particular.

Economists surveyed this month consider that, on average, oil prices will start to increase in the second half of the year. This month’s Consensus Forecast projects prices to average USD 49.4 per barrel in Q4 2016. Analysts see prices rising further and averaging USD 58.3 per barrel in Q4 2017.
