Looming Recession and Weaker Global Demand Expected to Push Oil Prices Below $100/bbl by Year End

byEnverus

Calgary, Alberta (August 3, 2022) — Enverus Intelligence Research (EIR), a subsidiary of Enverus, the leading global energy data analytics and SaaS technology company, has released Macro Forecaster, a new report that assesses the continued impact of COVID-19, the Ukraine war and weakening global economy on near-term oil and gas balances.

“Until July we have argued that Brent pricing was well supported at $100/bbl. However, the downside risks are becoming more prominent, and we now expect some sort of European recession by the end of the year. This will loosen balances by 1-2 MMbbl/d as weaker global demand emerges. We expect Brent to drift to the mid-$80s/low-$90s by year-end,” said Bill Farren-Price, one of the report’s authors and a director at Enverus Intelligence Research.

The report noted recent strength in U.S. gas prices. “The NYMEX summer strip traded at a wide range from ~$5.50-8.00/MMBtu in July. For summer 2022 and winter 2022-2023, our supply estimates are based on guidance that has zero elasticity. However, next summer we expect supply growth to push prices downwards to around $4.50/MMBtu. As for demand, industrial activity and power generation are showing no signs of slowing.”
