Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. : Goldman Sachs Strategist : Oil Price Could Reach $150/Bbl in Summer

01/17/2013 | 11:01am US/Eastern

By Hans Bentzien

FRANKFURT--The price of oil could reach as much as $150 per barrel this summer, Goldman Sachs chief commodities strategist Jeff Currie said Thursday.

At this year's global strategy conference in Frankfurt, Mr. Currie that he thinks it possible the price may reach $150 a barrel for Brent oil.

He said he wouldn't be surprised "if we woke up in summer and oil cost $150" per barrel.

In December, Goldman's official forecast for 2013 was around $100 a barrel. Brent oil to be delivered in February at present costs $110, while WTI costs $94.

Mr. Currie pointed out that despite the boom in U.S. shale gas, the oil price remains high, which he attributed primarily to sanction-related supply disruptions in Iran.

Trying to compensate for this, Saudi Arabia has already increased its oil production to a 30-year high this year.

At the same time, Mr. Currie added that while global oil demand has increased at a slower pace, it is still higher than the production increases in non-OPEC countries.
