EIA lowers crude oil price forecast through 2016

Amid high uncertainty in the global oil market, EIA has lowered crude oil price forecasts, expecting West Texas Intermediate crude oil prices to average $49 per barrel (b) in 2015 and $54/b in 2016, $6/b and $8/b lower than forecast in last month’s STEO, respectively. Concerns over the pace of economic growth in emerging markets, continuing (albeit slowing) supply growth, increases in global liquids inventories, and the possibility of increasing volumes of Iranian crude oil on the market contributed to the changed forecast.
