The Situation Room: Entering a New Decade with New Energy Predictions

The Situation Room: Entering a New Decade with New Energy Predictions

by | published December 30th, 2019

This week is cut in half with New Year’s Day – the first half in 2019, and the second in 2020, a new year and a new decade.

That doesn’t happen every day.

However, the energy world doesn’t stop for anything, up to and including the beginning of a new year.

Which means that far from decreasing my workload, the developments I’m keeping a close watch on increase.

Predictions abound as to where energy is going to go in the next twelve months. And because we’re entering a new decade, predicting the future for the ten years is also on the agenda.

Let’s take a look…

1. 2020 Crude Oil

I’m about to release my 2020 oil forecast to my Energy Advantage readers. In that analysis, I go over where oil and natural gas is likely to go in the next year, from drilling and production to pricing and exports.

And as the new year and the new decade begins this week, I will begin looking into the likely crude oil supply balance for the first quarter of 2020.

2. Aramco IPO in 2020

Next, I will be following up on a recurring rumor in my network about manipulation in Aramco shares.

Following this historic IPO, shares are being traded only on the Tadawul, the local Saudi stock exchange. Much of the IPO was purchased by Saudi holders to be retained domestically in a process that prevented knowing who the owners actually are.

Now it appears that a “thin” secondary trade volume is reflecting transfers between these holdings to artificially buttress share value.

Above are the remaining two focus points I have for this week. If you’d like to get access to them, just click the image or click here to get started.
