"...It's the marginal barrel of oil that affects the price so these 2 ml barrels of oil a day are very significant..."

Duration: 10:50 

 

Or listen to selected sub-features
  • Q1 - Besides oil prices having fallen and in so doing having virtually wiped out all of this year’s gains, what’s been the impact of IEA’s move - particularly given the amount being released is just 60 million barrels over a 30 day period?

    Duration: 05:10 


  • Q2 - "It took Iraq 10 years to reach the pre-Gulf War production levels and even if the Libyan come back in five years ..." How do you arrive at "five" years?

    Duration: 00:47 


  • Q3 - How long do you expect prices to stay at their current levels - given that the last time the IEA released oil in 2005 prices did fall but rose to their original levels within months?
    How do you see prices evolving - under what circumstances/scenarios, in what range, when and why?

    Duration: 01:57 


  • Q4 - How should one be positioned to cope with such "shocks"?

    Duration: 01:17 


  • Q5 - Where do you see oil related investment opportunities - trading volatility, arbitrage etc.?

    Duration: 01:30
