Upside risks on long-term oil prices: Nomura

As US shale production winds down after 2020, supply will struggle to keep pace.

Nomura analysts see upside risks on long-term oil prices, as forecasts see oil supply falling off after 2020. A study of oil production projects by the International Energy Agency (IEA) found that supply will keep pace with demand in the near-term, but US shale production is likely to wind down three years from now. Nomura maintains average Brent crude price forecasts for this year and next at US$60/bbl and US$70/bbl respectively.
