Predicting the future

“…we expect Saudi to abandon its current production maximisation strategy and return to Equilibrium Management…” NBROF Annual Outlook 2016-2055, September 2016

After publishing the above foresight in our Annual Outlook, a matter of months later – in late November and early December – Saudi led the “core swingers” within OPEC to resume their role of direct intervention in the market as we had predicted. We also forewarned that this return to Equilibrium Management and associated price rise brought with it a premium risk of reigniting appetite in starved US tight oil investment, a risk which we our continuing to monitor in our Quarterly Updates.

In our Q4 Update, published in December 2016, we also discussed the fragility of the OPEC deal: probable production increases in Libya and Nigeria against a backdrop of delicate security situations; the potential for Iran and Iraq to cheat the cuts; why non-OPEC Russia is unlikely to meet its targets. Our Q1 Update in March 2017 provided insights as these predictions bore fruit.

About the Forecast

The Annual Outlook addresses a number of short- to medium-term challenges in its first chapter, titled “Market Rebalances, the Swingers Return”; But it also moves on to address the long-term fundamental questions of our industry in its later chapters:

  • How will the supply/demand Equilibrium change over time in the face of a more responsive tight oil industry? 
  • What does that mean for mature and frontier regions? 
  • When will EVs make a significant impact on global demand? 
  • When and on what scale will LNG impact bunker fuel markets? 
  • When should we worry about peak demand?

As well as the Annual Outlook published every September, NBROF publishes three Quarterly Updates in December, March and June. Consulting time with NBR analysts is also available on request, providing deep-dives into subject areas of interest.

Our Annual Outlook provides vital strategic foresight that will be an essential tool to aid in your company’s future growth.

Our unique approach provides the most rigorous, balanced and insightful view of likely movements in global liquid hydrocarbon flows over a substantial period. The resulting foresight is relevant not only to corporations and governments directly involved in oil production and consumption but also to any corporation, government or non-governmental organisation whose activities or interests are affected in a material way by the price and availability of liquid fuels.
