BP has said it sees oil at around $50 per barrel for the next 3 years, and is making cost cuts in response. Interesting to think about the knock-on effects..........
  1. The Saudis, Kuwaitis, UAE are not looking to reduce production any time soon, because they want to get their power base back, i.e. hurt the fracking industry in the US. I guess BP reckons 3 years will see a few of the frackers go "bust" and a number of the investors get a bloody nose.
  2. The Saudis cannot be that disappointed that the Iranians are really suffering from these low prices right now, and I guess are happy that the supposed Syrian supporting Russians are taking a "bloody nose" into the bargain.
  3. I would also think the Chinese are sighing with relief at a time that their manufacturing industry is "struggling", and Europe too will get some relief in a time of trouble.
The power of oil lives on...............
