Short-Term Energy Outlook

Jul 9, 2019
Brent crude oil spot prices averaged $64 per barrel (b) in June, $7/b lower than in May 2019 and $10/b lower than the price in June of last year. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) forecasts Brent spot prices will average $67/b in the second half of 2019 and remain at that level in 2020. EIA expects West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil prices will average $62/b in the second half of 2019 and $63/b in 2020. EIA’s forecast WTI price of $63/b for December 2019 should be considered in the context of NYMEX WTI futures and options contract values for December 2019 delivery that traded during the five-day period ending July 3, 2019. These contracts suggest a range of $40/b to $84/b encompasses the market expectation for December NYMEX WTI prices at the 95% confidence level.

The Suez Canal and SUMED Pipeline are critical chokepoints for oil and natural gas trade

Suez canal and Sumed pipeline chokepoints
Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration

The Suez Canal and the SUMED Pipeline are strategic routes for Persian Gulf crude oil, petroleum products, and liquefied natural gas (LNG) shipments to Europe and North America. Located in Egypt, the Suez Canal connects the Red Sea with the Mediterranean Sea, and it is a critical chokepoint because of the large volumes of energy commodities that flow through it.
